Providing Effective Representation in Post-Divorce Modification Motions
Generally a divorce decree is intended to establish the terms for an ongoing relationship between separating spouses. However, circumstances may change with time, prompting a need for modification.
- Custody and Visitation: Work schedules and the needs of children change over time. If the current custody and visitation plan is not working or if you need to seek permission for out-of-state relocation, we can help. Doug Warlick is a tireless advocate who will work to ensure your child custody arrangement meets the needs of you and your family.
- Child Support: Either parent may sue for modification of child support, but the court will generally only agree to modification if there has been a substantial change in circumstances. If you have lost a job, if you believe the other parent's income is higher than reported, or if your expenses for primary custody have risen, you can request a modification of support.
- Alimony/Spousal Maintenance: In limited circumstances, maintenance or spousal support granted in the initial divorce decree can be modified. If you believe an ex-spouse no longer requires maintenance, you can petition for a termination of alimony. Likewise, if your former spouse's income has risen significantly or your income has substantially decreased, we can help you argue for an increase in monthly spousal support.
Because the judge has a fair amount of latitude in motions to change custody, visitation, support or alimony, it is extremely important to have quality legal counsel.
