Post-Decree Modifications

The entry of a Judgment for Dissolution of Marriage is not necessarily the end of litigation. Certain elements of a divorce decree may be modified. Child Support or maintenance may need to be modified based upon a change in the personal or financial circumstances of one or both parties. One spouse may fail to comply with a requirement  of the divorce decree. At the law firm of Mulyk, Laho & Mack, LLC, our attorneys are dedicated to working with clients on post-decree matters and advocating for the divorce decree modifications they need to fit their current circumstances.

Post-decree matters are often centered around issues of child custody, child support, visitation or maintenance/spousal support.  There are a number of significant changes in circumstances that can necessitate a post-decree modification including:

  • Remarriage of one spouse—If a spouse receives maintenance payments, remarriage usually alters or eliminates those payments.
  • Change of or loss of a job—If this results in a change of income whether an increase or decrease, child support and/or spousal support payments may be adjusted accordingly.
  • Relocation of one spouse—If a custodial parent geographically relocates, custody and visitation arrangements may need to be changed.
  • Change in circumstances of the spouse with residential custody—If the home environment of the custodial parent becomes unhealthy for a child, custody and visitation arrangements may need to be changed.

At Mulyk, Laho & Mack, LLC, we are skilled in evaluating changing circumstances and helping clients make the necessary modifications to their divorce degrees where possible. We have a reputation for fighting vigorously for the interests of our clients and their families.
