Modifications to a California Divorce Ruling

The best and most efficient approach to adjusting a divorce ruling is when both parties are able to agree to modifications that must be made. Despite reaching an agreement, both parties must present their case to the court for endorsement and judgment. Once this happens, the court is able to make it legally binding and enforce the new, better and mutual agreement.

In the event that you and your former spouse are unable to reach a mutual agreement, one should appeal or petition the court with specific legal grounds and facts to support their case. Those seeking a child support modification attorney should have proof that there has been a noteworthy change in regards to your former spouse’s situation.

Some examples include:

  • Your spouse has remarried
  • A change in a spouse’s occupation significantly affecting their previous income
  • A permanent disability
  • The child’s needs are altered by an illness or injury
