Can I Change My Original Divorce Agreement?

husband-sign-divorce-decree-ending-relationships-w-RJJWXRH (1)

Yes! Not only can you modify your divorce agreement, it is best to change it as your circumstances change.

Divorce agreement modifications can address changes to child support, alimony, and custody arrangements. Either party can request a modification to reduce or increase support payments
or to change parenting plan specifications.

The status of your case, as well as the type of change requested, will determine how you facilitate modifications. One method is through a Complaint for Modification. Once completed, this form should be filed in the county where the judgment was issued.

Another way to make a change in some cases is to file a motion. For example, a Motion for Reconsideration requests a family court judge to review his or her previously issued decision in order to make a change in light of newly discovered evidence, an issue of fraud, or a mistake of law. A Motion to Set Aside can be used to request a judge to vacate an existing support or custody order.

Whether you’ve lost your job and need to request lower support payments or you wish to alter your custody arrangement, modifications can be made to your original divorce agreement.

We’re here to help you navigate the different avenues for modification of your divorce agreement and help you file the necessary paperwork to get your amendments made. For experienced guidance you can rely on, please contact our office today.
