San Antonio Modifications Attorneys
When going through a divorce, the two parties involved must agree upon all the issues that come along with divorce, which can include alimony, division of properties and assets, and child support and custody. These agreements are drafted into a final divorce decree to be legally approved and enforced by a judge. Often, after divorce agreements are settled, and the final divorce decree has been acknowledged in the lives of both parties, circumstances change. Sometimes, they change to the point that the original agreements are no longer applicable. When this is the case, modifications need to be made.
You can pursue a modification by petitioning the court where the original divorce proceedings took place. It is possible that the court will not permit modification requests, but having a knowledgeable modification attorney on your side can help in getting satisfactory results. At the Higdon, Hardy & Zuflacht, our attorneys have experience working a variety of modification cases and are familiar with what it takes to get a modification approved. We realize that you are already facing difficulties from the heavy toll of divorce, and we want to help you make the modifications you need to start living a happy life once again.
Factors such as change in career, location, schedules, or income can lead to a need for modifications. These changes can affect a variety of areas within a divorce agreement. The four primary areas where a divorce order can be changed are:
- Child custody
- Child support
- Spousal maintenance
If your former partner’s new job takes them 200 miles away and raises their yearly income by a significant margin, this could greatly affect custody and visitation rights, as well as your rights to child and spousal support. This is an example of when you may need a modification. At the Higdon, Hardy & Zuflacht, we will be able to tell you the feasibility of your modifications being granted. If you do have a feasible case, we can guide you through the initial request and represent you through the whole decree modification process.
