What Happens When Your Circumstances Change?
The only constant in life is that it is subject to change. If you have gone through a divorce and have found that your circumstances have changed, it may be necessary to seek divorce order modifications. At Barber Law in Louisville, our lawyers can review your situation and let you know what your options are regarding the terms of your divorce decree.
Every family is different and every family requires a different resolution to reflect what is important to them and their unique circumstances. While we work to get the order right the first time, sometimes circumstances change in ways that are unpredictable.
Changing Your Divorce Decree
Many terms of a divorce decree are final and are not subject to change. However, orders for child custody, child support and spousal support, or maintenance, may be modified. If you have lost a job or experienced a significant drop in income, it may be wise to seek a change in support orders. If you or your child’s other parent intends to move, it may be necessary to change your custody and visitation agreement.
Regardless of your situation, it is important that you not simply decide to ignore your divorce agreement or otherwise modify it on your own. This can only be done effectively by court order and it is essential that you protect your interests with the help of skilled legal counsel.
