A Modification Attorney You Can Trust

Throughout life, a person’s plans and outlooks can change. In order to remain in compliance with court-approved agreements following your divorce, you need a modification attorney who can assist with litigation to update agreements so they will fit the needs and abilities of both parties.

Here at Anthoor Law Group, we understand that your needs or your family’s needs can change. For example, you might need to have your child support or alimony adjusted to reflect a change in your financial status. Or, if you or your ex-spouse are moving to a different city, you might need to modify your child custody order to ensure you can both comply with it. The scope of a petition to modify a divorce agreement will vary by case.

To get started on your strategy, schedule a consultation with our Bay Area modification attorney today.

Circumstances That May Require Post-Divorce Modification

If you have a change in circumstances that will affect your ability to fulfill Post-Divorce Agreements, then you should work with an experienced modification attorney immediately to seek modifications to those agreements. Examples of circumstances that may require modification of agreements can include:

  • Significant changes to income when there is a Support Order
  • Relocation
  • Issues involving child neglect or abuse
  • Substance abuse or anger management issue resolution
  • Disability (child or adult)
  • The income of 1 or both parents has changed;
  • One parent has lost his or her job;
  • One parent has been incarcerated**;
  • One parent had another child from another relationship;
  • There have been significant changes in how much time the child in the case spends with each parent;
  • The child's needs may have changed and there may be more (or less) costs for child care, health care, or education; and
  • There have been changes in any of the factors that are used to calculate child support.

Our Bay Area modification attorney can assist you in updating, revising, and modifying the following:

  • Child Custody/Visitation Orders
  • Child Support Orders
  • Alimony (Spousal Support)
  • Property Division (Non-Disclosed Assets)

What a Bay Area Modification Attorney Can Do for You

Your circumstances can change, and you may find the agreements you settled on in court at the time of your divorce are no longer appropriate for the needs or abilities of both parties. That is when you should call the team at Anthoor Law Group to seek a Modification.

The modification of court-approved agreements may be achieved through several methods, depending on the details of your situation and the willingness of your ex-spouse to agree to terms. Our Bay Area modification attorney can help you sort out your affairs and take all the necessary steps to pursue Modifications that reflect your current needs and abilities. Schedule a consultation today to get started.

Modifications Can Help You Avoid Severe Consequences For Failing to Comply With Post-Divorce Agreements

A change in circumstances such as financial loss, a change in residence, or loss of employment could affect your capability to comply with the terms of your divorce settlement. Court-approved agreements and court orders are binding and enforceable, and failure to comply with Post-Divorce Agreements could even cause you to face penalties such as wage garnishment or jail time.

Spousal support, child support, and custody orders can be modified. Neither you nor your children need to face undue hardship arising from post-divorce terms that both ex-spouses cannot support. To avoid being charged with contempt of court, you may need to request modifications. Our knowledgeable and capable modifications attorney at Anthoor Law Group can help you to proceed with the applicable processes towards securing reasonable terms for a Modified Agreement that will be workable for everyone involved.

Modifications to Child Custody, Child Support, or Alimony in California

While significant changes in your finances can often be a reason for modification, your expenses when starting a new family will not be a valid reason to lower your child support payments. We can assess your unique situation.

Plans or intentions of either ex-spouse to relocate will affect the ability of one or both parents to keep up an established Visitation Schedule for any shared children. The existing custody arrangement and the best interests of the child or children would be important factors in determining the path forward.

Alimony in California in the majority of cases ends upon remarriage unless both parties have agreed otherwise beforehand. The ex-spouse may choose not to remarry, and changes in circumstances may affect need or ability to pay spousal support according to the agreed terms. Alimony is meant to be temporary in California, and it can be modified based on a number of factors.

Our Bay Area modification attorney can assess your options for modifying Court Orders with your circumstances and best interests in mind. Contact us to schedule a consultation.

How To Pursue Modifications in Post-Divorce Agreements

Divorcees are sometimes able to agree to new terms without major conflict. We will often attempt this first on behalf of our clients.

However, if an agreement is not immediately forthcoming, an experienced Bay Area modifications attorney can litigate on your behalf to modify your previous settlement.

Contact the team at Anthoor Law Group to help you with the process if you want to revisit and update the terms of your Post-Divorce Agreement.
