While divorce decrees are final, they are not permanent. Changing any portion of the decree must be prompted by a substantial change in an individual's circumstances. Shelly Fowler understands that life moves on after your divorce, and sometimes a modification is necessary.

If you are looking to modify any existing portion of your divorce decree, or if you need assistance with enforcing the modifications or standing judgments, contact her office right away and speak with a trusted family lawyer . Ms. Fowler offers free case reviews so you can discuss your issues risk free.

Most portions of a divorce decree can be modified, including:

  • Child custody arrangements - In some cases, one parent may have moved from the area where the divorce was finalized, or there may have been a change in work and life conditions that may require a modified visitation schedule between the non-custodial parent and children.
  • Child support -
    • Did you lose your job?
    • Are you making less money?
    • Is your spouse making more money?
    If so, adjusting child support may be necessary. These accommodations can be made on a permanent or temporary basis, depending on your needs.
  • Spousal support - Along with child support, spousal support needs may change on an ongoing basis. To determine if your spousal support can be changed, contact an attorney right away.
