A St. Louis County Firm For Post-Divorce Modifications
In the years after divorce, life circumstances often change in dramatic ways for both ex-spouses and any children involved. For example, people lose jobs and advance in their careers, sometimes altering the amounts of child support and/or spousal maintenance that are feasible and appropriate. Many remarry. Custody arrangements that worked when children were very young may be unsustainable when they are older and have much different needs.
Experienced, Reliable Legal Guidance If Your Circumstances Have Changed
A Missouri divorce decree must reflect the state of affairs existing when it is issued. When substantial, continuing changes in circumstances justify changes in orders, it is necessary to file well-prepared motions in the appropriate court to modify them.
