Plainfield Post Divorce Modifications Attorneys

Family Law Lawyers in Will and Grundy Counties

Divorce settlements are not written in stone. The law understands that as the circumstances in a family's life change, so too must the terms of a divorce. At the Law Offices of Tedone and Morton, P.C., we work with clients to modify the terms of your divorce settlement or judgment to fit your evolving needs. Our goal is to resolve these issues with as little acrimony as possible and reach a new agreement that works in our clients' best interests.

Common Post Divorce Modifications

There are several elements of a divorce settlement that can later be modified through mediation, negotiation or litigation. The most common issues pertain to child custody & visitation, child support, and spousal support. Modifications to existing divorce orders can be made for a number of reasons including:

  • Significant shift in financial resources of one or both former spouses due to loss of a job, promotion, or other factors
  • Relocation of one parent
  • Changing educational needs of the child
  • Changing medical needs of the child
  • Remarriage of one former spouse
  • Allegations of neglect or abuse
  • Changing preferences of children as they mature

Depending on the circumstances, post divorce modifications can be disputed as ardently as the actual divorce. Not every circumstance warrants pursuing a post divorce modification. At our firm, we help clients weigh the pros and cons of filing for a modification and pursuing it in court if necessary. If our clients decide to go forward, we offer aggressive advocacy in and out of court. We understand how important family matters are to our clients, and we work hard to fulfill our clients' desires to the greatest extent possible.

If you are considering a post divorce modification, contact us to schedule an initial consultation to discuss your matter. We work with clients in Joliet and Plainfield, throughout Will County, Grundy County, Kendall County, and beyond.
