Post-Divorce Modifications

In This Section

A divorce decree is legally binding, but at the same time, it isn't set in stone. For legal assistance with post-divorce modifications from one of northern Illinois' most well-established law firms, contact the Law Offices of Johnson & Buh. Our legal team will aggressively represent your interests in court to ensure a positive result for you and your children.

Adjusting The Terms Of Your Divorce

Though it is not always easy, virtually any aspect of a divorce decree can potentially be changed, including:

  • Allocation of parental responsibility (child custody)
  • Child support
  • Maintenance (alimony)

The reasons to seek a post-decree modification depend on the individual. However, common reasons for one or both exes to seek a modification include changes to the parties' economic circumstances such as a job loss or promotion, which can affect the need for alimony. As children get older, their custody and support needs often change, requiring adjustments to the plan.
