Update the Terms of Your Divorce or Separation
When you are going through a divorce or legal separation, the courts try to create an arrangement that is fair to both parties. The terms set at the outset of your divorce are not intended to last forever. Lives change and so does each person's finances, lifestyle, etc. If the terms of your divorce no longer make sense given your current circumstances, you should retain legal counsel to help you modify the divorce contract through the proper legal channels. At William R Pierce Attorney at Law, we handle all types of modifications of orders.

When Can a Divorce Order be Modified?
Ultimately, the court is the one who decides whether a modification is justified. Our goal as your family law firm is to demonstrate that the changes will be in everyone's best interests and that there is clear evidence that the change should be made. For example, if you are paying spousal support to your ex-spouse because they were without a job at the time of your divorce and they have since been employed in a high-paying role, it may be possible to have your alimony payments modified.
There are a number of circumstances that could justify divorce modifications, such as:
- Substantial changes in income
- Changes in your children's needs
- Losing a job
- One party refusing to comply with the current terms
- Changes in state laws
- Becoming ill or disable
- Being arrested
- Moving to a new state
- Seek Reliable Counsel from a Trustworthy Attorney
