Making Changes After The Fact

Whether your divorce is decided via settlement or through trial, you will be held to the terms of the decision unless you appeal or request a modification. While appeals are difficult to obtain if your divorce went to trial, they are not impossible. Modifications to existing orders may be possible under certain circumstances. At Piro Zinna Cifelli Paris & Genitempo LLC, our family law attorneys can evaluate your circumstances and provide guidance about what course of action might serve you well.

Changed Circumstances Could Warrant Changed Orders

The terms of a divorce are binding, but they are created in a moment of time that the divorce takes place. You or your spouse may experience later life changes that could necessitate a modification. For example, the following life events could justify making changes to existing child support, custody or spousal support orders:

  • One spouse gets a raise or a better paying job
  • One spouse loses a job
  • A child or one parent becomes disabled
  • A parent seeks to move out of state

If you are seeking to change existing orders because of your own changed life circumstance or that of your former spouse, our attorneys can evaluate your request and pursue a post-judgment application where possible.
