Types of Modifications
Due to the often complex nature of family law, the court takes modification
requests very seriously. Whether or not you and your former spouse are
in agreement also makes a difference in how the process will go.
Some of the most requested modifications include:
- Child support
- Child custody
- Child visitation
- Spousal maintenance
When any one of these modifications is presented before the court, proper
evidence and documentation is required in order to prove to the court
that your request is valid.
Obtaining a Modification
After determining your desire for a modification, you can choose to talk
to your ex-spouse privately before taking the matter to court. Should
this be the case, it is important to obtain the support of an attorney
to ensure your desires are clearly expressed.
However, if court involvement is necessary, you will need to follow a few
key guidelines, including:
- Filing a motion in the court where the initial judgment was acquired
- Supplying your reasons for a desired modification
- Providing your ex-spouse with a notice
- Attending a court hearing
The court will make their decision based on the validity of your petition.
In order to secure your anticipated outcome, you need someone on your
side who can fight for you with compassion and dedication. A St. Louis
divorce lawyer from our firm is passionate about fighting for the outcome
