Under marital settlement agreement (MSA) and stipulated order providing that spousal support was not modifiable except for specific circumstances resulting in a reduction of support to $2,000, trial court had no discretion to reduce support to less than $2,000 based on changed circumstances arising from obligor’s disability and reduction in income, since disability was not unforeseeable when obligor signed the MSA; when obligor signed the MSA he had been suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) for 30 years, was approximately 52 years old, and was a licensed attorney.
