Modifying the Terms of Your Divorce Decree

The most common types of modifications that clients seek are visitation, custody, child support, or spousal support / maintenance. At our firm, we have extensive experience with modifications and helping our clients understand the process for child custody modifications. Attorney Joan Coulter has a masters degree in Education, which is a valuable asset in understanding how modifications impact the children of our clients.
Our clients often have many questions and concerns regarding modifying the terms of their divorce. Parents are concerned with the welfare of their children and want to ensure that the custody arrangement are appropriate for their family. Concerns that are often expressed involve the fitness of the other parent to care for the child as well as the amount of time the other parent is willing to commit to raising the child.

We work with our clients to help them understand how these changes can affect the amount of spousal maintenance that may be ordered by the court.
