After a divorce is finalized, there may be changing circumstances that demand alterations to the divorce agreement. These alterations are known as post-decree modifications. They are motions requested by either party after a divorce, either as a reflection of changing circumstances or a breach of contract between the ex-spouses. Post-decree modifications can affect child custody, child support, or alimony.
The end goal for post-decree modification is to resolve changes quickly and decisively, allowing both parties to move on with their lives. Suddarth and Koor, LLC can help simplify a potentially difficult process.
If there has been a subsequent change of circumstances that has made your original child support, custody, or visitation agreement unreasonable, you may be awarded a modification.
When it comes to changes in child custody and visitation, you need to show that your request for modification serves the best interest of your child. These modifications can be as simple as changing the days and times you are allowed to see your child due to a change in employment, or much more complicated arrangements.
