Modifications

Modification Lawyers in San Antonio and Surrounding Communities

Modifying your divorce decree

A divorce settlement isn’t written in stone. Although a settlement or judgment is meant to take the immediate and long-range future into account, things change in people’s lives after divorce. The loss of a job, the failure of a key investment, or even a major health problem can result in the need to request a modification to an original settlement or judgment. Depending upon your specific circumstances, you may have a legitimate reason to change your custody arrangement, child support obligation, spousal support, or marital property settlement.

We can help you file for a modification that makes sense:

  • Child custody orders
  • Spousal support payments
  • Visitation orders
  • Geographic relocation
