When Can I Modify a Divorce Decree?

Divorce agreements may need to change over time, even if they were fair for both parties to begin with. Spouses may get new jobs, kids grow up and move away, and numerous other life events may mean the terms of a divorce are outdated and need changing to better reflect the circumstances of both spouses.

If you experienced a substantial change in your life's circumstances and find that your existing custody or support orders are no longer effective, you may be able to request a modification from the court.

Common reasons people modify a divorce decree:

  • Relocating to a new city or state
  • Promotion
  • Job loss
  • Change in a child's schedules
  • Death of a parent
  • Child's needs have changed
  • Remarriage
  • Severe illness

It is important to note that you must receive permission from the court first before you take any action. You should never just stop paying child support or move with your child before a court gives their approval. Doing so can subject you to penalties or punishment from the court.
