Post-Divorce Modifications Ensuring Your Rights, Interests & Well-Being Are Protected

Vancouver Post-Divorce Modification Attorneys

Rely on Our Compassionate & Experienced Legal Team in Washington

For some couples, finalizing a divorce can be a stressful and emotionally challenging experience. After all, it’s extremely difficult to make so many life-changing decisions prior to parting ways. Luckily, the final divorce settlement isn’t necessarily set in stone. In fact, former spouses can request a post-divorce modification if a divorce order fails to meet their individual financial needs or doesn’t sufficiently support their child’s physical, emotional, and psychological health. At Pacific Cascade Family Law, our experienced Vancouver divorce lawyers can review your divorce settlement, explain your legal options, and guide you through the modification process.

Call our Vancouver modification lawyers at (360) 506-6332 if you are interested in a post-divorce modification.

Modifying Divorce Orders

Modifying a divorce order can be a relatively simple process so long as both spouses are in agreement about the requested changes. Likewise, the process can become complicated if spouses disagree about the modification. The court may also be compelled to prevent a modification if there are any concerns about it affecting a child’s well being.

You may be able to modify the following divorce orders:

  • Child custody – The court may be willing to modify a child custody determination if there has been a significant change in the custodial parent’s ability to provide for a child.
  • Joint custody – Even if the court originally awarded joint custody, a parent can request a custody modification so long as they can prove their child is in danger or that their ex’s lifestyle is not conducive to their child’s best interests.
  • Parenting time – Parenting time can be modified so long as the court agrees that it’s in the best interests of the child. As children become teenagers, their needs and schedules naturally change and develop. Court orders can be modified to reflect these changes and ensure both parents can still maintain healthy relationships with their child.
  • Spousal support – The court may modify a spousal support order if the receiving spouse remarries, the receiving spouse lives with a romantic partner, or there is a change in the earning ability of either spouse.
  • Child support – Child support can be modified in court or by the Child Support Program. Our lawyers can review your personal circumstances and help you determine which process best fits your needs. Typically, the court and the Child Support Program will only grant a modification to increase or decrease support payments if there has been a significant change in one parent’s financial situation.

At Pacific Cascade Family Law, our Vancouver modification attorneys have the knowledge and resources to provide our clients with exceptional legal counsel and zealous courtroom representation. If you and your former spouse are interested in a modification, our legal team can take care of all the necessary paperwork on your behalf. Alternatively, if you and your spouse disagree about the modification, we can represent your best interests in court and litigate for a positive case result.
