At Drexler Law in Colorado Springs, we are here for you if you need to adjust an existing order due to a change in circumstances.

Change Happens — Let Us Help You Adjust

It is important to understand that divorcing parties are not simply done with each other following a court order. Oftentimes, needs will change in some way that requires the parties to go back to court and make adjustments.

Reasons for a modification could include:

  • Parties no longer being able to follow an existing parenting plan
  • A child's needs changing
  • A family needing to move due to a job change
  • Significant change in income or finances

The main goal of a modification is to update a divorce decree, final orders, or current agreement to accurately reflect the situation facing the parties now. A divorce finalized seven years ago, for example, will encounter many changes such as children's sports and activities, employment, medical costs, etc. Through modification, parents can address these changes and update their orders to fit their current schedules and situation.

A significant portion of a court's case log or docket involves modifications of existing orders.

Types of Modifications

Working with Drexler Law allows you to understand the changes that need to be made to better accommodate both parties. Let our team help you make a case for the changes that must be made to your parenting plan, child support orders, or alimony orders.

Modifications to an order could include:

  • Spousal maintenance (alimony)
  • Child support
  • Custody orders
  • Parenting plans or visitation
