Happy New Year, Everyone! We hope everyone enjoyed their celebrations and had a fun, but safe time. It is officially 2019, a New Year, which can mean a New Start for you. Was 2018 a hard year for you? If you were divorced a while back and feel that changes need to be made to the custody plan that court-ordered or that changes should be made to the alimony amount that was assigned, you have come to the right place. Our divorce lawyers at the Lake of the Ozarks specialize in post-divorce modifications. What worked then, may not work now. If you find yourself feeling this way, call Deputy and Mizell today for your free consultation. Keep reading for a few examples of post-divorce modifications you can make.
Child Support Changes
The court will always rule in what they feel is in the best interest of the child. Therefore, child support can be changed after the divorce. However, there must be a reason to change the child support. The following are possible reasons child support could be changed after the divorce:
- The payer of child support has lost their job
- The financial need of the child has changed (educational, medical, etc.)
- The payer of child support has had a serious decrease in income
If you can relate to one of these issues, you should contact your divorce attorney in Camden County as soon as possible for a consultation.
Child Custody Plan Changes
There are many reasons one might want to change the child custody plan after they have been divorced. The following are possible reasons for a child custody plan change:
- One of the child’s parents has been incarcerated
- There is expected to be child abuse in the home
- The child has been exposed to drugs or alcohol in the home
- The child has been neglected by one or both of their parents
Alimony can also be changed after a divorce. There are specific situations where this has been known to happen.
- Your ex-spouse has remarried.
- Your ex-spouse has died.
- Your ex-spouse has got a new job.
- Your ex-spouse has got a promotion.
- Your ex-spouse has lost their job.
If you feel you have a viable reason to make a change to your alimony, contact an experienced attorney at the Lake of the Ozarks as soon as possible for a free consultation.
