Justifying Modification After Divorce

Modifications must be approved by the court. Courts will only approve a request if an individual experienced a significant change in his or her circumstances that justifies the need to modify an existing judgment.

Modifications can be requested in the following circumstances:

  • A severe illness or medical condition
  • Relocation
  • Dramatic change in income
  • If one spouses remarries or cohabitates
  • If there is a threat to a child’s welfare

You should never simply relocate or refuse to uphold your court order. Such actions can lead to legal penalties, so it is important that you follow court procedures and submit a sound, convincing petition to the court with the help of an attorney. From start to finish, we can help you prepare a persuasive modification petition and resolve any obstacles or disputes along the way.

Contact Wakefield Legal, PLLC by calling (206) 966-6933 to tell our Seattle modficiations lawyer about your changes.
