What Are The Factors Influencing Post-Divorce Modifications?

Things like job loss, medical emergencies, job relocation, or other things can cause a serious issue in upholding a post-divorce decree. For these instances, seeking a post-divorce modification can be the best solution for all parties involved.

When modifying a divorce order, you may have to consider the following factors:

  • Child Support: If you have a 20% deviation from the ordered child support amount (meaning an increase or decrease in income by at least 20%), then you may have an argument that you need a modification in child support obligations.
  • Alimony (or Spousal Support): If you are seeking a modification for alimony, the courts will require adequate evidence to support the need for more alimony, or the need to reduce the amount of alimony you are obligated to pay.
  • Child Custody and Visitation: Child custody orders can be changed based on the children’s needs or the parent’s ability to care for the children. Custody orders or visitation arrangements can be changed in instances of relocation, guardianship issues, or when the child’s best interests are at risk.

Under certain Missouri laws, the modification of a family law issue does not necessarily require a significant change. To learn more about your rights or options for modification, it is encouraged that you work with a skilled and knowledgeable St. Louis divorce modification attorney from our firm. We can help you and your family reach a modification solution that is best suited for your unique situation.
