As divorce itself demonstrates, life can change substantially in fairly short order. Fortunately, the law recognizes this fact and allows people who have had a significant change or changes in their lives, to obtain a post-divorce modification to existing court orders concerning child custody, visitation, alimony, and child support.
Whether you are seeking to obtain or prevent a modification, our attorneys will explain the strengths and weaknesses of your case and what to expect as the process moves forward.
At Froerer & Miles, we represent people who want to change their existing custody or support arrangements, and individuals trying to prevent modification to these orders as well. By law, individuals can pursue changes every three years. Common examples of “substantial” changes that can lead to a modification in custody, visitation, alimony, or child support include:
- Loss of income (by percentage), unemployment
- Promotions and pay raises
- Illnesses or serious injuries
- New children
- Changes in the needs of the children
- Geographic moves
Whether you are seeking to obtain or prevent a modification, our attorneys — each with more than a decade of experience — will explain what the strengths and weaknesses of your case are early on and what to expect as the process moves forward. From that point, we will work hard to prepare and present the information required to put your side of the story, your case, in its best light and to secure the results you are after.
