Macon Post-Decree Modifications Attorneys
Once a divorce decree is finalized, it is almost certain that circumstances that affected the decisions made for this decree will change over the years. While not all changes deem a post-decree modification, some may warrant such an amendment. The law does provide for such modifications in child support, child custody, visitation, parenting schedules and spousal/support alimony matters. If you believe you have a valid post-decree modification claim, it is time to seek the help of an experienced Macon divorce lawyer.

Child/Spousal Support Modifications And Custody Modifications
In general, for any post-decree modification, the party seeking the order must show that there has been a substantial change in circumstances. If the change impacts children, they must also show that the modification is also in the best interests of the child. Support modifications (spousal/alimony or child support) can be changed for significant events such as a job loss or significant change in income (whether increased or decreased). Child custody and parenting time agreements are often changed if one spouse remarries or is considering to move out of state. These are substantial changes that likely require a modification to the original divorce decree.
