Reasons for a Divorce Modification
If there is a child involved, then most likely the court has ordered one of the parents to pay child support. But sometimes situations arise – good or bad – and one of the parents has a drastic change in their income, so a modification will be needed for the child support agreement. For instance, if the father is ordered to pay a monthly amount and has been doing so with no problem, but then loses his job, a modification could be sought to lower the payments until he is employed once again. However, if the father has a salary increase or comes into a significant amount of money, a modification could be sought for him to pay more on a monthly basis.
Permanent spousal support is another area my law firm handles. If one of the individuals has a drastic change in health, lifestyle, ability to earn income, etc, permanent spousal support could be sought. There are many cases of women who are homemakers who end up getting a divorce, and now they have little to no experience in the workforce. The only viable option would be permanent spousal support so they can maintain their standard of living they were accustomed to while married.
