Post Judgment Modifications Attorney in Los Angeles, CA
At the conclusion of a divorce, a judge will draft a final document that addresses all outstanding relevant matters, including division of assets, child custody, child support, and alimony. In addition, the order will dictate the consequences if the direction of the court is not followed. Obviously, courts cannot reasonably see into the future or take into consideration the possibility of a change of circumstances. If circumstances change, the court may be open to modifying the order. If you are requesting a modification, you need to establish an ongoing, continuing, and unforeseen change in circumstances that meet the legal standard of the court.

Why would I need a post-judgment modification?
Before California will allow for a modification, you must establish a significant, unforeseen, and continuing change in your situation. In cases related to child support, you might request a modification based on a loss of job or change in the custody arrangement. Spousal support may be modified because of a change in financials, a decline in health, or a change in living situation. Child custody may be modified because of a change in a work schedule, relocation, medical issues, and many other factors that would affect the life of a child. Child support can also be modified if the parent is able to establish that they have had a significant loss or change in income, serious health concerns, and other major life changes that can impact his or her ability to pay. Modifications for relocation can be requested based on what serves the child’s best interests, including academics, familial relationships, social life, and more.
