Post-Divorce Modifications in Rockville

There can be many changes in circumstances for those who have already finalized a divorce. Recently, the nation's poor economy has caused changes in circumstances for many people in our state, including a large number of divorced parents who depend on or pay child support. For those divorced parents with children, there's also the possibility of the children's needs changing, such as educational or medical needs, or one parent becoming unable to continue providing parental care.

The divorce orders set down by a family court judge are binding. Many of the terms addressed in the separation agreement may not be eligible for modification. There are some very important issues that can be modified, if the divorced person's change in circumstances is considered substantial. At the Gardner Law Firm, P.C., we have 35 years of trial experience in divorce. We are able to provide legal representation for those individuals who need to modify their existing divorce order. If you are in need of a post-divorce modification, contact a Rockville divorce attorney at our firm, and our attorney will fight for a resolution to the matter that serves you and your family's best interests.

Types of Modifications

Post-divorce modifications can be obtained for:

  • Property division - This involves adjusting marital property awards based on changes to child custody or visitation terms.
  • Child custody/ visitation - For situations involving parental relocation, parental development of a disability, or child abuse or substance abuse on the part of one of the parents.
  • Child Support - For situations where either parent's income changes significantly, because of a job loss or new job, or a reduction or increase in wages. Child support modifications can also be sought when the child's needs change dramatically.
  • Alimony/spousal support

Contact a Rockville divorce lawyer if you're seeking a modification to your divorce agreement, or if you're trying to block a modification request from your former spouse.
