Post-Divorce Modifications: An Overview

During the divorce process, you will be forced to make tons of decisions. Some of these may be cut and dried, while others can be hard to predict. MeehanLaw, LLC, has helped clients throughout Connecticut who are interested in changing the terms of their agreement. Our knowledgeable staff is ready to help those who need it most.

What Constitutes A Change?

Many people think that after they sign the final papers, it’s a wrap. While that is true for many people, it is not always the case for others. There are a number of things that can change as time goes on. For example, perhaps you are paying or receiving spousal support. The paying party loses their job and can no longer afford it. Maybe you have children and are interested in moving. This may change your child support agreement and your visitation schedule. All these decisions need to be formally made with the court.

It’s important to know that, if both parties agree on the new changes, it is not necessary to argue your points in front of a judge. One party can simply file the paperwork and have it signed off by the court. That being said, it is still crucial to have an attorney. We can make sure the new terms are still protecting you and your best interests. When you and your former spouse can’t reach an agreement, we will do everything we can to represent your wants and needs. You do not have to go through this on your own.
