Though many people wish a divorce would be the end of their legal troubles, the truth of the matter is, a lot of alterations and changes can be legally requested by either party. Not every divorce ends once everything has been finalized, because many factors are subject to change, which allows either ex-spouse to request a modification. Though you and your ex-spouse may have once agreed, you may find yourselves in disagreement once more.
Following a divorce, provisions such as spousal support, child support, child custody, visitation, and other important aspects are agreed upon between both parties. However, no one can predict what changes will be necessary to those provisions, in which case the divorce provisions must also be modified to fit accordingly.
If any of the following occur, a modification may be necessary:
