Legal Issues Do Not Always End When the Divorce Is Final
Even after your divorce is finalized, there are still aspects of the decree that may be subject to modification. When one spouse, or in some cases one of their children, experiences a significant change in circumstances, a request may be made to modify the divorce decree.
Modifications can be requested for many reasons, including:
- Loss or decrease of income
- Significant pay raise
- Onset of drug or alcohol problem
- Recovery from drug or alcohol addiction
- Child abuse
- Significant increase in children’s medical expenses
- Parental relocation
These events may prompt one of the parties to seek a modification of child support, child custody or alimony. However modification requests are not always granted, and bringing or defending against a claim takes the skill of a seasoned family law attorney.
