Making Modifications to Divorce Terms
Help from a Santa Clarita Divorce Lawyer
Martinelli Law Group provides exceptional representation to individuals going through a divorce or dealing with other areas of family law. For those who have already been divorced, you may eventually find out that the terms that were originally set no longer fit your current situation. People can change and so can their situations. The decisions that are made in a divorce can have an impact for years to come. Terms may need to be modified and our Santa Clarita divorce lawyer can help.
A modification can be sought in the following areas:
- Child Support
- Child Custody
- Spousal Support
How is a modification made? It should always be done legally and you should not solely rely on a verbal agreement between you and your former spouse. If you are able to agree that a decision needs to be made then it may be able to convince the court to make the change. We understand that many couples are unable to agree on these changes being made and in that case, the court can be petitioned.

When the case is brought to the attention of the judge, the main thing that they will be concerned with seeing is that a significant change in circumstances took place. This may be that the needs of the child increased so support should be raised as well. It can be that the individual paying spousal support lost their job and they are no longer able to afford the cost. There are various reasons for why a modification may need to be made and it is important that a strong case is presented to the court. Our firm may be able to help you persuade the court that a change to divorce terms needs to be made. Get in touch with us for personalized attention and individualized representation.
