Divorce Modifications in Salt Lake City
Making the Changes You Need to Your Divorce Decree
Life constantly changes and, in some cases, your situation can change so
drastically that it warrants a modification of your divorce decree. You
can modify your
child custody and visitation order, your spousal support order, and your child support
order. However, unless fraud was somehow involved, you cannot modify property
or asset division. At

need to accommodate the changes life frequently undergoes. You can rely
on our knowledgeable attorney to effectively represent your interests.

Can Divorce Decrees be Amended?
If you and your former spouse can reach an agreement regarding the modifications
you are seeking, you can forego a lengthy litigation process. However,
you must still seek the court’s approval to ensure the changes are
enforceable. You do not want to rely on a verbal agreement. Otherwise,
you risk running into some legal troubles if your ex-spouse has a change of heart.
If you cannot reach an agreement with your former spouse, you can petition
the court for a modification. Our experienced attorney can help you navigate
every step of the process.
Here is what you need to know about modifying your divorce decree:
Modifying spousal support: If you involuntarily took a pay cut, lost your job, or otherwise experienced
a significant change in your financial situation, you will likely be successful
in your request for a reduction in spousal support payments.
Modifying child support: Similarly, if you need an increase or a decrease in child support payments,
you must also prove a significant change in your financial circumstances
or a substantial change in the needs of your children.
Modifying child custody and visitation: As was the case when the initial custody order was issued, a judge will
render decisions regarding modifications of custody based on the best
interests of the children. Your circumstances or your former spouse’s
circumstances must have substantially changed, making your current arrangement
impractical or difficult to comply with.
