What Can Be Modified After a Divorce & Why
All aspects of your divorce agreement should be created in such a way that neither spouse is put through undue hardship, emotionally or financially. When this fair balance is altered or disrupted, post-divorce modifications can be used to set things right again and restore the comfortable lifestyle you deserve.
We can help you request modifications of:
Child custody agreements
Spousal maintenance payments
Child support payments
Just as the court needs to hear a reasonable argument when divorce orders are first created, it must hear the same when creating a modification. Simply stating that you want to see a change will not likely not accomplish anything, other than losing time and money to court fees. You will need to show that a major life event has occurred that mandates a change to the divorce orders.
Examples of major life events (as recognized by Oklahoma family court):
Debilitating injury or illness
Unexpected job loss
Necessary relocation for career
One party wants to give up custody
Evidence of domestic violence
Parent refusing visitation
If a major life event has not occurred, you may still be able to change your divorce orders by working directly with your ex-spouse and creating a new agreement on your own terms. There is a clear chance that complications and difficulties could arise with this method. You should not agree to any impromptu changes without first reviewing the new contract with your family lawyer.
