Modifying a divorce decree in Nashville

Once a couple in Nashville decides to end their marriage, they may feel a great sense of relief once the final divorce decree is signed and they can start living their lives apart from one another. However, as the months and years go by, they may find that the provisions in their initial divorce decree no longer meet their needs, whether it is child custody arrangements, child support payments or spousal support payments. When this happens, they may want to seek a modification.

In order to modify child custody arrangements, child support payments or spousal support payments, there must have been a significant change in circumstances. This means that the change is material and was unanticipated when the court last issued an order with regards to the provisions.

For example, to modify spousal support, if one party experienced a significant change in what they earn, it might warrant a modification. Or, another example would be a modification of a child support award. If the time the child spends with one parent has significantly changed or if one party experienced a significant change in what they earn, this may also warrant a modification.

That being said, determining whether a modification is appropriate is not always easy. It can help to discuss your case with an attorney who can assess your situation and help you decide what steps to take moving forward. At our law firm, we aim to help our clients with their modification needs. We know what it takes to assist with such situations, from procuring evidence that there was a significant change in circumstances to representing our clients during negotiations or in court, if necessary.
