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 Full Circle Family Law in Salt Lake City, our team is committed to helping clients obtain the modifications they need to accommodate the changes life frequently undergoes. You can rely on our knowledgeable family law 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 family law 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.
