Qualifying for a Temecula Divorce Modification
Not just any change in circumstances may qualify for a post judgment modification. If you are to pursue a divorce modification, you will need to prove that the change is significant enough to warrant the time and expense spent in pursuing an alteration of your existing agreement in court. Some examples of situations that may qualify for a divorce modification may include:
- Involuntary job loss or demotion that has dramatically changed one parent’s income
- The relocation of a custodial parent, when the move is far enough to significantly impact the child’s life
- Drug abuse, alcohol abuse or domestic violence at the custodial parent’s home, placing the child at risk
- The remarriage of a spouse
For the party requesting a post judgment modification, the burden of proof is very high. Your lawyer will need to supply the court with evidence that a modification is warranted.
