Advocating for Changes that Suit Your Current Needs
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. Our highly qualified Scottsdale family lawyers have handled thousands of cases, and have more than 40 years of experience combined. We know what the court needs to see in order to grant you the change you want, and we can also work to block changes that aren’t in your best interest.
