I don't have a great answer for you, but I certainly hope that's what it means... as a 'recipient', (since your definition says for EITHER the payor or the recipient), I can tell you that the amount specified for my ex to pay isn't enough for me to rent/purchase a home, and pay bills, and groceries, and sure as h*@$ isn't enough to buy furniture with!

I do know that in cases where an amount is set and court-ordered, if the payor loses their source of income (through no fault of their own), and is unable to secure alternative employment (again, through no fault of their own), the court will consider lowering the amount... I believe for a specific period of time. The payor must show that they are actively trying to become employed, though. Hopefully someone else will be able to give you a more specific answer.
