Advocating for Change
A modification to a divorce decree may involve a change to or elimination of child support, child custody, spousal maintenance, or other rulings. The court generally requires proof that a major life event is ongoing and substantial enough to warrant a change to the original decree.
Major life events that could require a modification may include:
- Loss of job or significant reduction in hours
- Long-term illness or disability
- Change in a dependent child’s health
- Child reaches the age of 18
- Loss of health insurance or other benefits
- Remarriage or cohabitation
Any life change that has a significant effect on the personal or financial stability of either party may qualify for a change to visitation rights, the amount of child support or alimony, and more.
