Post-Judgment Modifications

At the time of your divorce you cannot predict future circumstances. Significant changes may occur after your divorce is finalized which may require a modification of the terms of your Judgment of Divorce. For example, you or your spouse may have lost your job or you may need to relocate. If the terms of your Judgment of Divorce are no longer workable, you may be able to obtain a post-judgment modification of your Judgment of Divorce. Obtaining a modification of your Judgment of Divorce can be difficult at times, but the attorneys at Copps DiPaola Silverman, PLLC are well versed in the specific standards for a modification and are committed to achieving a result that conforms to your current life circumstances.
