In divorce law, the final divorce decree is often not the final court order. After a divorce becomes final, either spouse can challenge certain decisions made by the court. Post-divorce modifications challenge the financial rulings of the divorce decree.
There are several circumstances that require a change in one’s spousal support, otherwise known as Spousal Maintenance awards. Modifications to the divorce decree require substantial changes to Judgments for Dissolution of Marriage and Allocation Judgments. A post-divorce modification is the best way to change certain aspects of the divorce decree including spousal support, property division, child custody, child support, and visitation.
Post-decree modifications involve changed circumstances in the following areas:
- Alimony, otherwise known as Spousal Maintenance and Spousal Support
- Child Support and Related Child Expenses
- Parenting Issues such as Allocation and Custody Judgments
- Issues affecting property rights
