Petitioning for Post-Divorce Modification
Family courts recognize that an individual or family’s income and circumstances might change over time, and as a result, child custody, child support, and alimony orders can be modified in certain situations. Although there isn’t a specified amount of time that must pass before you request a modification, the court will need to determine if the change in your income or circumstances warrant adjusting the existing order.
Reach out to our law office in Nashville to discuss any of the following post-divorce modification matters:
- Child custody: Although courts usually like to preserve stability in child custody arrangements, a material change in circumstances can warrant changes, such as the discovery of new relevant facts or the parties agreeing change is necessary for the best interests of the child.
- Child support: Courts can adjust the amount of child support if there is a significant variance in the income of either parent or if there is a substantial change in the needs of the child. Courts can also adjust child support orders when the custody arrangement between the parties changes or if any other material and relevant change of circumstances arise.
- Alimony: Courts can adjust or discontinue payments for spousal support if there has been a substantial and material change in circumstances that justifies the modification. This includes remarriage, cohabitation, death, or a change in the other party’s income.
The following changes in circumstances might make you eligible for modified post-divorce orders:
- Acts of domestic violence
- Serious health problems
- Relocation of either parent
- One parent's income is increased or decreased
- A spouse remarries or moves in with their significant other
