Divorce agreements cannot be reasonably expected perfectly address the needs and circumstances of a family for the duration of their existence. Things will frequently change, such as kids getting older, spouses re-marrying, employment statuses changing, and more. As such, when one of these major changes occurs, the law has provisions that allow you to petition to modify your divorce agreement.

Modifying your divorce is different from an appeal because the modification process allows you to present new evidence before your judge. However, this usually only is effective for modifying one or a few aspects of your divorce. These also occur after time has passed since your divorce was finalized.
An attorney will be able to analyze your case and figure out the best way to present your new circumstances before a judge to help you obtain a favorable outcome to your modification petition. These cases can be tricky, meaning it is strongly advised that you seek the counsel of a professional.
