Our Divorce Modification Attorneys
What Can Be Modified in a Divorce Settlement?
Depending on how their divorce was settled, people may want to modify a laundry list of items found in their settlements. Even though they can vary from case to case, divorce modifications are limited to the following:
- Child custody and visitation
- Child support
- Spousal support/alimony
In order for a court to grant a divorce modification, the parties involved must show that there has been a material and substantial change in circumstances. Examples of significant changes in circumstance include, but are not limited to:
- Parental relocation (i.e., ex-spouse has plans to move away)
- Job loss
- Increase in income
- Decreased parenting ability due to drug use or alcohol abuse
