When Can I Modify a Divorce Order or Agreement?
Asking a court to modify your divorce order is basically requesting that the court goes back on their previous decision. As you might guess, courts and judges are usually not exciting to have to change their own rulings. In order to give your modification request validity and a strong chance of approval, you will want to show the court why a significant life change has made the modification a necessity. In other words, simply disagreeing with or not liking a preexisting divorce order will likely not get your case very far.
Significant life changes that may justify a modification include:
- Serious injury or illness
- Unexpected job loss
- Relocation requirement for career advancement
The life changes that justify a modification can be experienced by yourself or your ex-spouse. For example, if it is your ex-spouse who remarries, then you can ask for a modification to how much spousal support you pay. In such a situation, you would probably be excused from having to pay any at all.
