When Post-Judgment Modifications Are Necessary
Divorce is one of the most life-changing experiences a family can endure. However, life continues to change after a divorce is finalized. And those changes could mean that court orders no longer apply to your circumstances. In these cases, there are options to modify court judgments.
At Shon Cook Law, PC, we provide comprehensive guidance to Michigan families through every step of the family law issues they face. We take the time to understand our clients’ needs and create realistic solutions to meet them. Our clients can depend on our extensive experience to assist them through the modification process.
Understanding The Process Of Post-Judgment Modifications
Individuals and families can modify various court orders, including:
- Parenting time
- Custody agreements
- Child support payments
- Spousal support orders
However, they can only petition for a modification under certain circumstances such as:
- Job change, including a promotion or job loss
- Relocation that impacts custody or parenting time
- Signs or evidence of domestic abuse
- Instability or safety concerns at a parent’s home
- Changes in this child’s developmental health
- Changes in the child’s wishes
Whoever petitions for the post-judgment modification must prove that one or more of these reasons apply to their family’s situation. Otherwise, courts will not consider a modification.
Every family is different. Your circumstances are unique, and you need an experienced family attorney to advocate for your rights. We take the time to understand your goals and individual situation to provide you with the assistance you deserve.
