Court Orders in Divorce Cases are Subject to Modification Down the Line
During a divorce, the agreement that is drawn up protects the rights of both partners, based on which the court issues a decree. There are numerous matters on which both partners have to agree, including child support and alimony. The agreement outlines the rights and responsibilities for both partners. However, in case of any changes in circumstances down the line, the court orders may have to be modified accordingly.
Modifications of court orders are granted in case of
- A change in income for the spouse who’s paying alimony or child support
- The recipient spouse gets married
- The recipient spouse inherits a significant sum of money
- New job opportunity for either spouse, requiring relocation
