Knowledge And Experience Are What Matter
Offering Helpful Modification and Enforcement Services
A divorce represents a significant change in your life. As you and your former spouse move forward, it is possible that your financial situations may evolve. As your needs in the future may be different than those of the present, a modification may be a necessary maneuver.
At Ballinger Law Firm, we understand that everyone’s circumstance is different. We routinely assist clients in the Charleston and Mount Pleasant areas as they seek to modify support or custody agreements. We also provide guidance to those seeking to enforce current arrangements, as well as those resisting impractical terms.
When as a Modification Necessary?
A divorce decree modification can be a useful tool. As a settlement agreement made today may not be useful in five years, a modification can help you account for major changes to your living or financial situation. Some instances where a modification can make sense include:
- You or your spouse cohabiting with a new partner, rendering spousal maintenance unnecessary
- A change in employment that may warrant an adjustment to child or spousal support
- A living arrangement shift that may call for a closer look at an existing custody agreement
To get a better understanding of your options, it is often helpful to speak with a family law attorney. At our firm, we can help you get a clearer picture of your situation before ultimately deciding if a modification may be right for you.
Looking at Enforcement Issues from Both Sides
Financial difficulties can and do arise. When these occasions present themselves, frustration can mount for both parties in a divorce or custody agreement. At our firm, we offer assistance to those who are seeking what they are owed, as well as those who want relief from untenable court orders. We understand that these can be contentious, delicate matters, and we always aim to serve our clients’ best interests.
