Helping You Modify The Terms Of Your Divorce
The day a divorce is finalized marks the end of a significant chapter in your life. Your divorce decree should reflect the realities of your life at the time of your divorce. As time passes, you may need to modify the terms of your divorce decree. For instance, as children grow older, their needs may change, and your custody and visitation arrangements should reflect these changes.
Some people try to make informal changes to child custody, child support or alimony. This is not wise, and in fact, informal changes can create serious problems down the road. Working with a knowledgeable lawyer can make a dramatic difference.
When Life Changes, We Can Help You Change Your Divorce Decree
Under Georgia law, anyone who wants to modify a divorce decree must show that there has been a substantial change in circumstances. These could include many factors, including a job change or job loss, relocation, changes in family dynamics, the remarriage of an ex-spouse who is receiving alimony, a child’s special needs and myriad other factors. In addition, any changes to child custody arrangements must be in the best interests of the child.
