Helping Families With Evolving Needs After Divorce
When a divorce is finalized, it doesn’t mean that the terms of your agreement are set in stone. Life goes on, and you and your family’s needs will evolve over time. This being the case, you can seek a modification to your divorce decree that better fits your current situation. At Garrison Law Firm, PLLC, we are here to help families in and around Jackson, Mississippi, navigate this process.
When Should You Seek A Post-Divorce Modification?
One family matter that is almost certain to change at some point after your divorce is your child custody arrangement. Kids change a lot as they grow up. If your children were young when you got divorced, they most likely have disparately different school and extracurricular schedules now than they did back then. As children grow older, they may even have their own wishes about the family’s custody and visitation arrangement that they would like honored. Regardless of what kind of shift has occurred, our firm will be happy to help create a schedule that suits your current wants and needs.
Another thing that can change is your and your ex-spouse’s needs surrounding alimony and child support. If you are the recipient of these funds, changes in your lifestyle may lead you to seek a higher amount to better support yourself and your children. Similarly, if you are the one paying, changes in your career or financial situation may necessitate a lower amount.
