Divorce decrees are intended to provide long-term arrangements for a divorced couple or family—but they are not chiseled in stone. Often, an individual must re-approach the court and seek an adjustment to their alimony or child support order. These adjustments are called modifications.
Our Henderson divorce attorneys at Ford & Friedman represent clients in the greater Las Vegas area whose lives have changed and whose post-judgment decrees should be altered accordingly. We work closely with our clients to learn the nuanced facts of their case and put forth a compelling argument for a modification on their behalf.
Our clients have complex lives—and their decrees should reflect that. Call our firm at (702) 904-9898 to learn more about your options.
While adjusting a divorce decree is possible, the Nevada courts do not issue modifications lightly. In order to secure a modification, the petitioner must demonstrate to the court that their circumstances have changed and they no longer can meet their post-marriage obligations (or that their ex-spouse's obligations should be re-evaluated).
A post-decree order can often address those new challenges. Our office handles all aspects of securing a modification, including appeals and motions for reconsideration. No matter which side of the modification matter you're on, Ford & Friedman is prepared to ensure the court has the information it needs to make an appropriate decision.
