Our Divorce Modification Practice

We assist men and women who are involved in hearings or motions to modify an existing divorce order, whether you are seeking a change to a divorce decree or want to fight efforts to amend a judgment. We handle modification proceedings involving all types of requests, including:

  • Motions by custodial or noncustodial parents to change custody or visitation arrangements, whether because of relocation, health matters, a change in work schedule or other circumstances
  • Requests to modify child support or spousal support payments because of a change in the income of either parent, or the needs of the child
  • Requests for change of custody or for restrictions on visitation due to the needs of the child or as a result of concerns about the welfare or well-being of the child

Protecting Your Rights in an Enforcement Proceeding

We will help you protect your interests in hearings to enforce the terms of a divorce judgment, whether your dispute involves disagreements regarding custody and visitation, or the payment of support. We have extensive experience handling contempt proceedings, representing both petitioners and respondents.

Though we have the trial experience to effectively represent you in court, attorney Jones is also a certified family law mediator. So we can help you work cooperatively with your ex-spouse to resolve differences regarding the modification or enforcement of a divorce decree. We also have considerable negotiation skills and will work directly with opposing counsel, if possible, to work out an agreement that meets your needs.
