Understanding the Modifications of Court Orders
Once a divorce is finalized, most people believe that it is in ink and can never be changed. It, however, is important to recognize that this is not necessarily the truth. While a finalized deal, it does not necessarily mean that the court orders are untouchable. In fact, by working with an experienced Rancho Cucamonga divorce lawyer, you will be able to re-visit the court orders and seek to gain a modification. Courts recognize that life changes and sometimes the agreements that are struck after a divorce need to as well to keep up.
For example, if circumstances are different, the custody, child support and spousal support agreements may no longer make sense. One parent may have received a new job in a different state and need to move - requiring an update to the visitation plan. One of the parties may have received a significant raise which could result in the ability to pay more alimony and provide for a better quality of life - or, on the flip side, one of the parties could have lost their job and could no longer be financial able to make the monthly payments.
