When Should You Seek Modifications To Your Divorce Decree?
You went through great lengths to come to the final position in your child support, child custody and spousal support agreements. After all the work you already went through, it can seem hardly worth the effort to pursue a modification that you badly need for your agreement.

Our team puts in the effort needed to truly understand the needs of our client, and we work closely with you to determine your options in order to provide you with the best possible outcome in your case.
What You Can Expect From The Modification Process
There are two methods that can help you change a divorce decree: an appeal or a motion. An appeal is for the purpose of modifying a divorce decree based on the idea that the original decree has a major flaw in it. The flaw can be a result of false information, such as incorrect income statements that were used to calculate child support. The flaw could also be from an incorrect assumption of the law.
The other method for modification is a motion. Motions are commonly preferred since they cost considerably less in terms of time and money. You can modify child custody or support payments. By filing a motion to modify, you need to prove that circumstances of your original divorce agreement have changed. Situations such as losing a job or even gaining a promotion can be grounds for a modification.
