Post-Divorce Modifications in Galveston
The terms of your divorce are legally binding, but they are not necessarily permanent. Circumstances change, and a new lifestyle may require
modifications to your custody arrangements, child support payments, and more.
When such a change becomes necessary, it’s a good idea to contact a family law attorney who can help you go through the right channels to ensure the changes are implemented fairly, correctly, and in keeping with the law.
There are several reasons you may require a divorce modification:
- A change in employment, such as losing a job, affects you or your spouse’s ability to make child support payments.
- A spouse who was previously receiving spousal support is now in a more stable financial position and may not require that level of support anymore.
- A spouse wishes to move for work or other reasons, requiring a change in the way custody is maintained.
- A spouse is unable to maintain the same visitation schedule or custody arrangement due to life circumstances, such as disability, career changes, or other factors.
In general, post-divorce modifications apply only to custody and support. However, some ex-spouses may find it necessary to modify divorce terms multiple times as their children grow and circumstances change.
