While a divorce may be final, you may still deal with your ex-spouse regarding various issues in the future. Spousal agreements, custody agreements, parenting plans, alimony or child support agreements can be covered for a specified amount of time. Life events can happen and modifications are possibly needed to the original divorce decree. Contact one of our lawyers for a free initial consultation and put our legal expertise to work.

When is a Divorce Modification Advised?
The courts will consider divorce modifications when a major life change has occurred in one or more of the following situations: child support, spousal support (alimony) or child custody. The court will consider the same factors used in the original decision in most cases, but substitute the new situation. If your income of five years ago was used to calculate child support but now you earn half of what you did back then, the court will possibly modify the child support payment amount. You might want to consider a divorce modification if you have experienced any of these events:
- A drop in income.
- Illness or disability.
- Relocation for the custodial parent.
- Rising costs for caring for the child(ren).
- New needs for the child(ren).
- Changing health situation of the child(ren).
