Has your divorce or custody case ended but you need to make changes to the final orders? It is a very common occurrence for parties to obtain a final decree in their case only to experience a change of circumstances that necessitates modifications of the final decree.
Perhaps a custody order was entered which believe no longer serves the best interests of the children. Perhaps a child support or alimony award was entered which you no longer have the ability to pay. Or perhaps a mistake was simply made in the decree which needs to be corrected. There are a number of reasons why you might be in need of a modification of the final decree.
Each issue for which you seek a modification has a specific procedure that must be followed in order to effectively pursue the modification. There is no “one size fits all” approach to modification of a decree.
In addition, in some cases seeking a modification may require immediate action, and any delay in filing for a modification may harm your chances for obtaining one.
