Your Life Changed. So Can Your Divorce Judgment.

California family law courts have provisions for modifying divorce judgments relating to child custody and spousal support. The law recognizes that financial and personal circumstances change in people's lives in the years following a divorce. If your financial or geographical situation has changed and you can no longer meet the terms of your original divorce agreement, you may be able to modify the terms of your judgment.

We can help you modify your judgment and court orders relating to:

What Modifications will the Judges Consider?

Your child custody and visitation agreement may be modified if your child is now spending a significant amount of time with the non-custodial parent or in the event of relocation.

Spousal Support

A significant change in the financial circumstances of one of the ex-spouses can result in a change of the original alimony obligation. A modification of spousal support can also be sought if additional information comes to light regarding one of the spouse's financial holdings or income.

Marital Property Division

Except under extraordinary circumstances, marital property settlements will not be considered for modification.
