Negotiating a divorce agreement can be difficult and time-consuming, especially if it must be done through the courts. Once your divorce is finalized, you and your ex-spouse are legally bound to its terms. As time passes, however, your life and your circumstances are likely to change. To address these changes, you may need to renegotiate the terms of your divorce by seeking modifications through the court.
At Carr | Woodall, we have extensive experience handling modifications for clients facing this situation. Our South Jordan modification lawyers can provide the legal help you need. We are deeply familiar with what is allowable under the law and how to go about seeking the changes you need to reflect your changing lifestyle.
