Modifying a Divorce Decree

People who get divorced usually make the decision to do so because they think it will make things better, and may even think that they will be able to go back to their life before marriage. However, its rarely that easy, especially if the couple has kids together or substantial assets. One of the biggest difficulties after divorce is that the relationship often does not completely end, the couple still has to coordinate child custody and visitation, as well as child support and alimony. Along with this continued relationship comes continued bumps in the road and when they do the legal way of dealing with it is to modify the divorce decree.

How to Solve Post Divorce Problems through Divorce Modification

There are two separate types of issues that can arise after the divorce decree is signed by the judge, the first is that one of the parties is not following the decree and the other is that the decree is no longer suited to your desires or needs. If the problem you are having is that your spouse won’t follow the order that the judge has given then the remedy is an Order to Show Cause, but if the problem is that the decree no longer fits your situation then you need to modify your divorce decree. A divorce modification is not an easy process and it requires that you can prove to the court that there are new circumstances that weren’t contemplated at the time of your divorce. Also the main areas that judges allow for a modification are child custody, child support, and alimony.
