In many life situations, circumstances after a marriage termination rarely remain the same. There are occasions when it is necessary to seek a modification of a marital agreement or standing court order relating to family law issues.
Depending on the terms of the Original Court Order in the Divorce or Dissolution, a request for a post judgment family law modification may be possible and appropriate.
However, certain areas of the Final Divorce Decree or Judgment Entry may not be modified, unless both parties agree to a modification. For example, provided that the original court order allows a modification of spousal support, the applicant may still be required to show that the financial condition of a party has significantly changed, and that a modification may be warranted. Oftentimes the applicant may be required to show that the condition warranting the modification was not known or foreseeable at the time prior to the court order.
Modification of child support is more common. Child Support modifications are appropriate where child support worksheet shows that support will increase or decrease by at least ten (10%) percent with the adjustment. That is, after computing the change in earnings of both of the parties, and all other proper adjustments, the bottom line owed per month by the obligor changes 10% or more, a modification may be warranted.
