Need To Modify Family Law Orders?

It would be unreasonable to assume that a divorce judgment would be able to anticipate life changes years into the future. With this in mind, family law courts allow for post-judgment modification on many aspects of a divorce judgment as circumstances change.

At Seder & Chandler, LLP, our lawyers have extensive experience guiding clients through even the most complex post-judgment modification. Clients rely on us for personal service and individual attention. We are dedicated to prompt communication through all phases of their matter. Often, years later, clients will approach us to modify a portion of their divorce judgment. Our legal knowledge and thorough preparation allow us to develop a compelling argument for the change. Contact an attorney at our firm to discuss your options for post-judgment modification.

Following a divorce, many factors could change. People might move or change jobs, unexpected Medicaid issues may arise. The child's needs might change as years pass, as he or she grows and develops. It is your attorney's goal to ensure that your divorce judgment accurately reflects the needs of all involved parties. Most often, this requires a post-judgment modification. Most commonly, the changes can include:

  • Changes to child custody arrangements
  • Changes to child support agreements
  • Changes to spousal support or alimony agreements
  • Changes in school enrollment
  • Changes to visitation or parenting plans
  • Changes affecting college tuition and expense payments
  • Changes in health insurance benefits, eligibility or coverage issues
  • Parental relocation
  • Addition of extracurricular activities for the children
  • Addition of day care or health care needs for the children

Again, may aspects of a divorce judgment can be modified. Of course, there has to be a material and substantial change in circumstances that did not exist or were not anticipated at the time of the divorce. Trust our firm to examine your situation and provide advice about how best to proceed.
