Post-Divorce Modifications

Find Support from St. Charles Lawyers

A lot can change after divorce. You may need to modify the judgments and rulings on matters such as child custody, child support, maintenance, and any other matters concerning your divorce. While there are those who believe that divorce is the final step, but fortunately, modifications can help you fulfill your duties and responsibilities while still accommodating to the changes in your life.

You would need to demonstrate to the courts that your circumstances have changed significantly, that continuing arrangements as they are currently would no longer be practicable. To bring forth your case in court, you will want to have a skilled St. Charles attorney achieve results that work in your favor.

Creating a Compelling Argument

A judge will give more weight to cases where you can create a compelling case to demonstrate how much your situation has changed and why you need to modify the terms. In some cases, you can resolve more simple matters just by speaking with your ex-spouse. You can avoid time-consuming court procedures. For the more complex cases, however, you may need to involve the courts to decide on the matter.

Our St. Charles lawyers can help modify the following matters:

  • Child custody agreements
  • Visitation schedules
  • The amount and frequency of spousal maintenance
  • Rearranging financial obligations of either spouse
  • Modifications due to a parent moving or changing jobs
  • Modifications due to allegations of domestic abuse

Ultimately, the courts will decide the course of action that is in the best interests for all, especially if you and your spouse share children. Having lawyers in St. Charles who are determined to help you achieve those goals can help you better navigate the complexities involved with family law. We have a reputation for providing the highest quality representation in the area.
