Hillsboro Lawyers for Post-Judgment Modification
Can You Change Your Divorce Settlement? In Many Cases, Yes.
People's lives change. Moving to another city, losing your job or starting a new relationship may make it impossible to keep up with your original parenting schedule, child support or spousal maintenance obligations. The courts understand that flexibility is often a better solution than unrealistic enforcement. If it's time to change your original divorce settlement, we are here to help.
Modify Child Support and Custody in the Portland Area
A court will not modify existing divorce orders without a showing that there has been a substantial change in circumstances. As a result, you need an attorney experienced at making sound arguments and presenting evidence that supports or defends against a modification request. Typical issues that result in approvals include:
- Job loss
- Temporary or permanent disability
- Sudden increase or decrease in income
Of course, these are just examples. A court will review your unique circumstances to determine whether a modification to your existing custody, support or alimony order is necessary.
