How to know when a divorce modification may be granted

Divorce settlements are an important part of the divorce process, however, modifying a divorce settlement may also be important for the divorced parties. The lives of the parties, of course, continue to move forward following a divorce which may create a need for changes to divorce settlements. In some circumstances, a party to the divorce may seek a modification of the divorce settlement and in some circumstances, a modification to a divorce settlement may be contested.

It may be possible to obtain a divorce modification if there has been a significant change in circumstances. A significant change in circumstances concerning a child custody or visitation modification request can include a necessary job relocation or a change in work schedule. Other unavoidable circumstances may also qualify as a significant change in circumstances warranting a child custody or visitation modification.

A significant change in circumstances concerning a child support or spousal support modification request can include a significant change in income or a change in needs. The timing of a divorce modification can be sensitive so it is important to understand the circumstances that can lead to a divorce modification and request a modification when necessary.

Because divorce modifications are important to the divorced parties, as life commonly changes and circumstances do not remain the same following a divorce, it is helpful to be familiar with the circumstances under which a modification may be approved. It is also useful to know when and how to request a modification so that parties can successfully move forward with their changing lives.
