When navigating the divorce process, agreements involving child custody and other types of support are based upon circumstances at the time of the divorce. Thus, it’s not uncommon for one party to seek a change or modification to a previous decree after the final order. In doing so, however, the party requesting the change must be able to prove that a revision is necessary. For instance, perhaps there has been a significant change in one’s income following a divorce or suppose one parent is considering relocating to another state. In these situations, a post-decree modification may take place. On the other hand, if there is a problem providing appropriate care to the children, this also warrants a change to an original agreement or divorce order.
