Helping You With Issues Related To The Modification Of Divorce, Support And Custody Orders


In the wake of a divorce, it is important to realize that not all rulings are set in stone; some can be modified. The fact is, families change over time, sometimes drastically. A former spouse may move or may obtain a job that offers a higher compensation. In these cases, family members can pursue modifications to more accurately reflect these changes.

That said, change in job or minor change in compensation may not automatically qualify for a modification. In Kansas and Missouri, modifications can be pursued in the event that a change is "so substantial and continuing as to make the terms (of the current agreement) unreasonable."

If you have questions about modifications, it is important to reach out to an attorney who can inform you of your rights and work to make the strongest argument that a substantial change has occurred.
