Circumstances Leading To Modification
Life isn't always predictable. As time goes on, you may find that certain events necessitate a modification to your original divorce terms. When this happens, retain the experienced help of a Dallas divorce lawyer to make sure your modifications are correctly filed and legally binding.
Events that may require one or more changes in divorce terms include the following:
- Loss of a job
- Change of income
- Loss of residence
- Injury of a parent
- Injury of a child
- Special needs of children
When one parent resists changing the original divorce terms, the matter must be resolved in court. Even if there is no resistance, changes need to be officially recognized by the court.
