POST-DECREE MODIFICATIONS

Revisiting divorce and child support decrees

When a divorce is finalized, the agreement reflects current circumstances. As those circumstances change with time, however, adjustments to the original divorce agreement may be appropriate. Specific requirements must be met and a compelling argument must be made for the court to approve the modification of a divorce agreement. At the law firm of LSR Family Law Group, our attorneys have the experience, tenacity and skill to advocate for the modifications our clients need to reach a favorable result.

Keeping the divorce agreement in line with your circumstances

Depending on the type of modification you are seeking, the court will consider several factors in reviewing your request. Factors such as a child reaching the age of majority, a change in employment, the need to relocate, a child attending college or a change in marital status for either spouse can all come into play in modifications.

Our attorneys represent clients on both sides of modification cases. Whether you are the parent seeking to modify an order or the parent contesting a proposed modification, we will present the strongest possible case to support your position.

In Illinois, post-decree modifications include:

  • Child support

  • Spousal support

  • Parenting time schedules and decision-making
