Modifications

Henderson Divorce Modification Lawyers

Circumstances Change. So Should Your Divorce.

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 will face new life situations that require them to re-approach the court to seek an adjustment to their alimony or child support order. These adjustments are called modifications.

Our Henderson modifications attorney at Ford & Friedman represent clients in the greater Henderson area whose lives have changed and whose post-judgment decrees should be altered accordingly. We can work closely with you and your family to learn the nuanced facts of your case and put forth a compelling argument for a modification on your behalf.

Your life is complex — and your decree should reflect that. Call our firm at (702) 904-9898 to learn more about your options.

Grounds for a Modification

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).

  • Changes that often necessitate a modification include:
  • Increases or decreases in income
  • Circumstances affecting your child's welfare
  • Changes in spousal support
  • Assets are liquidated
  • Real estate is sold

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.
