Modification of Divorce Orders
Changing Divorce Orders When Circumstances Change
Every man’s post-divorce experience is unique. Some men remain on relatively friendly terms with their exes, whereas for others the post-divorce relationship is cool or outright hostile. Regardless of the quality of your post-divorce relationship with your former spouse, you may need to continue to communicate on a semi-regular basis. This is especially true for dads and for men paying long-term alimony to their former wives.
Agreements or court orders regarding child support, child custody, and alimony are subject to change if either person’s circumstances change significantly. Even if you have a friendly relationship with your ex, you are strongly advised to make any changes to your divorce agreements in writing. This is even more important when hostility is high.
Post-divorce modifications of orders are very common. At Southern California Dad’s Law, our family law attorneys regularly assist former and new clients with such modifications — whether they are contested or uncontested changes. If you need to change child support amounts, or if you have concerns about child custody or visitation, contact Southern California Dad’s Law to schedule an assessment with a lawyer.
