SALT LAKE CITY DIVORCE DECREE MODIFICATION LAWYER

We Are Available to Address Your Changing Needs After Divorce

While many of the issues decided during divorce proceedings are final, others can be modified if there is a substantial change in circumstances. Although most people are relieved to see their divorces end and reluctant to reopen the process, in some cases it can be very much in your best interest. If you want to modify your divorce decree, a Salt Lake City divorce decree modification lawyer can help determine if your circumstances allow it. And if your former spouse is seeking modifications that diminish your rights, an attorney can effectively advocate on your behalf. Even when both parties agree to a modification, an experienced lawyer helps you comply with legal requirements and adequately memorialize your agreement.

How a Decree Can Be Modified

Divorce decrees — whether litigated by a contested divorce attorney in Salt Lake City or settled out of court — usually involve several determinations. Most of these can be modified under certain circumstances:

  • Child support
  • Child custody
  • Parent time
  • Alimony

In most cases, a substantial and material change in circumstances must be present to justify a modification. For support and alimony, this can mean a major change in either party’s income or the costs necessary for raising the children. A Salt Lake City divorce lawyer can determine if your circumstances justify a modification of one or more elements of your divorce decree. If modification is appropriate, an attorney can also help you negotiate a modification with your former spouse and obtain approval through the court to protect your rights in the future.

Uncontested divorce attorneys in Salt Lake City know that there are numerous complex issues in nearly every divorce. And anticipating every eventuality and every path your life or the lives of your former spouse or children may take in the years to come is simply not possible. A Salt Lake City divorce decree modification lawyer at Intermountain Legal can help you mold the elements of your divorce decree to fit your ever-changing life or protect your rights against an overreaching former spouse.
