New Hampshire Divorce Modification Attorney
Divorces are known to be relentlessly heated and emotionally draining situations, even when the married couple is amicably divorcing with a simple division of assets and agreed-upon child custody and support (if applicable). Because of the emotional weight and present circumstances surrounding a divorce, it is natural for an ex-spouse to feel somewhat cheated by the court’s orders after the divorce was finalized.
Furthermore, circumstances do change and what was acceptable during the divorce may no longer be feasible. For these reasons, it is important to contact an experienced and knowledgeable New Hampshire divorce modification attorney to help create and initiate court motions to modify the divorce orders.
Types of Divorce Modifications
When asking New Hampshire family courts for a modification in your divorce final decree (or orders), it is important to understand that you need to prove to the courts why they should warrant a modification. Some common reasons that successfully warranted modifications have included:
- Significant increases or decreases in income
- Loss of job or substantial changes in job security
- Changes in a child’s financial needs, if applicable
- Remarriage of the ex-spouse
Based on these changes in circumstances, divorced parents can petition the courts to make certain changes, including:
- Lowering or increasing child support
- Lowering or increasing alimony payments
- Modifications to the parenting plan
- Relocating minor children
Avoiding Contempt Cases
It is important to note that court orders and legally binding modifications are not optional. Failure to meet your side of the “bargain” (child support or alimony payments, for example) can result in you being found in contempt of court. Therefore, if you recently lost a job, suffered a decrease in income, or experienced some other financially difficult situation, you need to approach the courts with your concerns and petition for a modification.
