When a couple divorces, child custody, child support, and spousal maintenance determinations are made to accommodate needs and reflect current life circumstances. But as months and years go by, lives change. The legal decrees that once directed child custody and payments of child and spousal support may no longer fit.
A post-divorce modification may be appropriate and necessary if the life circumstances of an ex-husband, ex-wife, or child have significantly changed. To learn more about modifying a divorce decree, contact a modifications attorney from Magnuson Lowell, P.S.

An attorney from our law firm can help you understand your options for pursuing a post-divorce modification of:

- Child support — If the financial circumstances of either parent change, or the child's financial needs change, either party can seek a child support modification.
- Spousal maintenance/alimony — A modification to an existing spousal maintenance decree can be sought if either party's financial circumstances have significantly changed. Talk to an attorney from our firm to learn about options specific to your situation.
