Finalizing a divorce does not always mean that an individual’s family law issues are over. As families evolve, it is not unusual for ex-spouses to want to change a prior divorce decree’s provisions regarding child custody, child support, or spousal maintenance. For a modification to be issued, however, the party seeking to update a decree must prove a substantial change in circumstances.
At Rockford Family Law, we have helped clients successfully pursue and oppose modifications for over a decade. If your circumstances have substantially changed since the time of your divorce, we invite you to call our office to schedule a free consultation with experienced Illinois divorce decree modification attorney James Teeter, Jr. He can listen to the facts of your case, explain your legal options, and tenaciously seek to accomplish your objectives.
