Understanding Your Options With Post-Decree Modifications
Life goes on after divorce, inevitably presenting twists and turns that affect people both personally and financially. A wide range of events — from job loss to a major promotion or advancement, significant changes in children’s needs and parents’ abilities to meet them and more — justify petitions for post-decree modifications in the years after divorce.
Orders for child support and spousal maintenance are always modifiable if an unavoidable, substantial change in circumstances occurs. Various changes in parents’ and children’s living circumstances also may make it important to quickly and effectively seek a change in custody or visitation orders.
