Modifications to Existing Divorce Decrees

Divorce Modification Is your divorce already finalized, but you are still in need of modifying something in your decree? While divorce decrees are final, you can modify an existing court order regarding an element of your divorce. With the guidance of an attorney, you can work to modify almost any portion of your divorce orders.

At The Goodman Law Firm, P.C., we understand that sometimes modifications are necessary, especially as more time passes after your divorce and as personal, financial and professional changes occur. When you work with a Rockwall family lawyer from our firm, we can actively pursue the best possible post-dissolution results for your modification case.

Reasons for Modifying Court Orders

There are many different reasons that individuals need to modify divorce decrees, and with the help of an attorney, you can see a quick resolution to your case. Either spouse can file for a modification regarding support agreements, child custody, or other divorce orders outlined in your final decree. Some situations that may require a change to a decree include:

  • Remarriage
  • Shift in parenting responsibilities
  • Sudden illness or injury
  • Medical emergencies
