Modifications To A Divorce Decree

Child custody, parenting time and support terms established in connection with a divorce don't have to be permanent. In fact, either party can ask a court to modify these arrangements when a substantial change in circumstances warrants it. Whether you need a modification or want to oppose one,

Committed To Achieving Your Goals

Unemployment, relocation of the children, remarriage, an illness or disability, a pay raise, increased or decreased needs of the children — each of these is an example of the kind of life changes that can warrant modification of child custody, parenting time, child support or alimony terms.

A party seeking to modify custody, visitation or child support terms has to show that there has been "a significant change" in circumstances and that the requested modification serves the best interests of the children. Alimony modifications also require a significant change, but are generally more difficult to obtain.

Whatever your situation or need, our lawyers will explain the legal issues, standards and burdens of proof involved and will be available to answer questions, address concerns and keep you informed every step of the way.
