Modifications of Your Divorce Decree With an Experienced Lawyer's Help

As a divorce lawyer in family law practice for more than 20 years, I seek to take into account every possibly relating to a divorce settlement. However, there are situations that no one can predict that necessitate returning to court to change the order.
Reasons for Modifications After Judgment
People seek modifications in the final order of a divorce judgment for reasons that include:
- Sudden accidents where a parent is disabled and no longer able to care for the children
- Job loss that involves a significant drop in income
- A move to another state involving changes in custodial arrangements
- A significant increase in income
- Post-Judgment discovery of an undisclosed asset or debt
- Any "change in circumstances" regarding child support,
spousal support or child custody or visitation.
For a number of reasons, there may need to be changes in child custody or visitation, or a need for stepparent adoption after a Judgment. In very limited situations, the division of
property or debt may also need to be modified.
