Effective Post-Decree Modification Representation

Life moves on after divorce. Circumstances can change substantially after a final decree has been issued. That final decree, however, remains enforceable — even if changes in the economy, the needs of your children or your job status have made the existing order unworkable or unfair.

Many aspects of your divorce are final, such as property division matters. However, when addressing issues involving children (and sometimes spousal support or alimony) a change in circumstances may require a modification of the divorce decree. Substantial changes in the income of one or both parents, the availability of employment or changes in the needs of children may impact the fairness of a support order. Relocation (sometimes called a move-away) may adversely impact the parent-child relationship for a parent who is relocating or a noncustodial parent whose parenting time is cut-off due to the relocation of an ex-spouse.
