Post-Divorce Modifications

Experienced Santa Clarita Divorce Attorney

When you go through the divorce process, your attorney puts together all of the necessary details and evidence to present to the court. The court then makes a decision based on this and other information which has been provided, to the best of its knowledge.

In some cases, the terms put forth in your divorce order may be agreeable, but in other cases, there may come a time where you can no longer stick to the terms. At Gharibian & Oliver, we understand that life can change and so can your ability to pay child support or spousal support, or otherwise stick to the mandated agreement. It is important to know that there are steps which you must follow before you can change the terms of your divorce order.

Legally Changing Your Divorce Agreement

In order to change an order, you must prove that something in your life has changed substantially and affected your financial situation, such as losing your job, getting into an accident, or developing a serious physical condition.

A modification may be used to change the terms of your court order, including:

  • Spousal support
  • Child support
  • Visitation rights
  • Child custody

An experienced Santa Clarita divorce attorney from Gharibian & Oliver can help draft a post-judgment modification and represent you in front of a judge or your ex-spouse's lawyer.

Although this may seem easier, it is very important to make the changes legally and have them approved by a judge's order. We can help you understand the modification process when you visit our office for a one-on-one consultation.
