During divorce, most of the people will sign a settlement agreement or received the court’s final decree. These documents contain the basic details about the payment including the amount and duration. Due to the important changes in the situations of the partners, post divorce modifications can be done. If one of the parents are unable to meet the responsibilities due to some justifiable changes in their lifestyle or financial situation, then they will come back to court for divorce modifications. This usually can include a change in job or salary. This can also mean a change in the child’s life such as grades, security or lifestyle.
Most of the times, divorce modifications occur due to the children custody or support problems, however there are situations which involve a change in alimony provision, agreements of the properties and debt dispersion. During all these circumstances, if the things have modified to a greater extent after the divorce, then the decisions about the issues such as alimony, child support and custody, visitation can be modified even after receiving the divorce. The circumstances of the party requesting for modification should have been altered to a greater extent after the initial order has been made. Minor disagreements will not be helpful in requesting for a modification. In some situations, Arnold & Wadsworth will be able to help the parents to come to proper agreements with each other without the involvement of the court. However, certain situations must be resolved only in the District court.
If one of the parents is requesting a modification due to their relocation, they must justify the reason for their relocation in the court. The court will be analyzing whether this modification is suitable and reasonable. Relocation of parents involves the modification of custody arrangements. This may also involve a change in the payment of the child support if the other parent needs to spend the traveling fees to visit the child.
