At the time you go through the divorce process, there are certain factors taken into consideration to come up with the court order approved by the judge. Although this may have been ideal at the time and worked for a certain amount of time, circumstances can change. It is important to realize that you cannot simply discuss a change with your spouse and put it into action. You must actually work with a Brockton modification lawyer to make changes to your divorce order. At Benzaken & Wood LLP, we have handled post-judgment modifications for a variety of different circumstances.
The basic premise of a modification is that there must have been a drastic change in your life that requires a change. For example, if you have recently become ill or injured, have lost your job or there has been a change in your salary, or if you are getting remarried, you may need to change your court order.
It is understandable that you may hesitate to request a legal change or even bring up the subject, especially if you finally put your legal issues to rest. However, you always have the right to request a modification with the assistance of a Brockton family law attorney.
Modifications can be made to the following:
You may be able to negotiate a new agreement by sitting down with your ex-spouse, but if they are not cooperating you may need to involve the court. It is highly advisable to have a lawyer representing you to achieve your desired outcome, especially if matters are heated.
