Divorce Modification: What can be changed?
A divorce decree includes determinations that are vital to your future as well as the future of your children and your finances. These determinations are included in child custody and child support, property division and spousal support. Attorney Benzinger provides complete legal representation to people at all stages, including in the years that follow a divorce decree. Mr. Benzinger can advocate on your behalf for or against modifications of the following:
• Child support modifications: A significant change in material condition such as job loss, promotion or remarriage may warrant an increase or decrease in child support. Following state guidelines, support can be adjusted to account for these changes.
• Child custody and visitation modification: A significant change in material condition regarding custody and visitation can include parental relocation, a child’s request to live with the other parent, removal of the child from a home due to an unsafe environment and other factors.
• Spousal support modification: A recipient spouse may petition for an increase if the paying spouse now earns more or if her or her needs have substantially changed. The paying spouse can move to terminate support if the ex-spouse is remarried or co-habitating or has reached financial independence.
