Meeting Post-Divorce Needs

Your divorce agreements reflect a snapshot in time. Life brings change, and many people find that even after the court’s final order on their dissolution, issues arise that require further legal counsel. This is especially true when there are children involved.

For example, over time you and your ex-spouse might interpret the court orders differently and may disagree about how the terms of those orders should be carried out. Or, perhaps, your life circumstances change, and you need to modify some part of the divorce decree.

Regardless of the reason, you cannot simply change your payments or arrangements to align with new ways of seeing them or when your circumstances change. Even if your ex-spouse agrees with the modifications, you should consult with an attorney for assistance with filing a request for modification and to help prevent costly misunderstandings or unfortunate encounters with the legal system.
