Even when original divorce agreements meet the needs of both parties and their children, life changes, and the terms of an agreement may not always be satisfactory down the road. As situations change, so do the needs of people and their families, which results in the need for post-decree modifications. Modifications can be made to child support, child custody and spousal support matters.

Experienced Missouri Post-Decree Modifications Lawyer
In order to seek a post-divorce modification, there must have been a significant material change in circumstances. The modification needs to reflect the current reality and continue to protect the best interests of any children who are involved. A significant material change may include a re-marriage, a change in the needs of a child or a change in income level.
A modification could increase or decrease the amount of child or spousal support being given, the terms of a parenting agreement or allow the custodial parent to relocate. For more information about how to pursue a post-divorce modification, make sure that you speak with an experienced attorney before taking any actions.
