Gresham Divorce Modification Lawyers
It would be unrealistic to assume that a divorce judgment will remain effective for years after the dissolution of a marriage. Fortunately, the court recognizes this and provides individuals the opportunity to change or modify the terms of the judgment. While your property rights are not modifiable, issues regarding child or spousal support or parenting time can be modified if needed. Contact a Gresham attorney who is skilled in handling modifications of support, child custody, parenting time and the enforcement of existing orders.
At Gresham Family & Bankruptcy Law, our lawyers have extensive experience guiding clients through the many challenging aspects of changing old terms in a divorce judgment that no longer works or is outdated as your children get older. If you are considering moving to a different city or state, it is important for you to consider the implications of such a decision. It is not uncommon that years after your divorce, if you wish to move, change jobs or suffer a loss of income the terms of your divorce judgment will need to be updated. Even if both parents agree, it is necessary to have your agreement documented and filed with the court so it is enforceable. When these dramatic life events occur, it is wise to re-examine the divorce judgment to ensure that the previously agreed-upon terms are still appropriate.
