Divorce Decree Modifications in Arizona

While a divorce may be final, you may still deal with your ex-spouse regarding various issues in the future.  Spousal agreements, custody agreements, parenting plans, alimony or child support agreements can be covered for a specified amount of time.  Life events can happen and modifications are possibly needed to the original divorce decree.  Contact one of our lawyers for a free initial consultation and put our legal expertise to work.  Our 24 hour a day response to emergency telephone calls is available for both new and existing family law clients because we want to make sure that you have the protection you deserve.

Can a Final Divorce be Modified or Changed?

The courts will consider divorce modifications when a major life change has occurred in one or more of the following situations:  child support, spousal support (alimony), or child custody.  The court will consider the same factors used in the original decision in most cases, but substitute the new situation.  If your income of five years ago was used to calculate child support but now you earn half of what you did back then, the court will possibly modify the child support payment amount.  You might want to consider a divorce modification if you have experienced any of these events:

  • A drop in income
  • Remarriage
  • Illness or disability
  • Relocation for the custodial parent
  • Rising costs for caring for the children
  • New needs for the children
  • Changing health situation of the children

If you think you qualify for a Divorce decree modification, please give our offices a call at (602) 254-8880. We offer free consultations so we can find out more about your situation and using our years of expertise, make a recommendation on how you should proceed. Our offices can be reached 24 hours a day by phone or by using our confidential email form.
