Making Your Case

If you want to modify a divorce-related agreement, you need to be dealing with a substantial change in circumstances such as a layoff, or an illness or a new job that would significantly benefit your children but also require you to relocate. If you have such a real need or reason, you can obtain a post-divorce modification by negotiating with your former spouse or by going directly to court and asking a judge for the modification you want.

In either case, getting the help of an experienced attorney early on will be extremely beneficial. The same holds true if you’ve been asked to negotiate a change informally or have received legal notice that your ex-spouse is seeking to have the court modify an existing order.

We are known for achieving outstanding results through negotiation and aggressive representation at trial. Just as important is our commitment to understanding your needs and seeking out ways to make the process work to meet those needs.
