Even after a divorce is final, issues may arise that must be addressed. At Crawford, Modica & Holt, we are happy to help new and existing clients obtain modifications to existing orders, when appropriate. We also help enforce existing orders when one party satisfies its legal obligations.
Do life changes require an agreement or order to be modified?
Generally, for a modification to be proper a substantial, material and unanticipated change of circumstances must be present. Although, existing orders do not change just because a change in circumstances has occurred. A party must petition the court, as soon as possible, when a significant change of circumstances occurs after divorce.
