Post-Decree Modifications in a Divorce

After your divorce is finalized, it's easy to assume everything is set in stone. However, life is unpredictable, and circumstances can change. Maybe a job loss has led to financial struggles, or a relocation made visitation arrangements difficult.

Whatever the issue, post-decree modifications can provide a solution. These are changes to a court's original order. Such alterations can range from spousal or child support adjustments to altering custody arrangements.

To receive such modifications, you must go through the court system. Our team can help you prove that a significant life change has occurred, and alterations are necessary.

  • Breaks custody agreements
  • Blocks your visitation rights
  • Fails to make support payments
  • Fails to keep visitation appointments
  • Spends child support money on themselves
  • Etc.
