Assisting Minnesotans With Post-Divorce Agreement Modifications

Life doesn’t stop changing after divorce. Whether those changes are positive or negative, they may require modifying your post-divorce agreements to account for these new realities.

The lawyers at Kohlmeyer Hagen, Law Office Chtd., have been helping people in Southern Minnesota navigate all parts of the divorce process, including modifications to post-divorce agreements. We’re here to reduce the frustration, and complexities these modifications can place on your life and ensure they satisfy your needs and interests.

What In My Divorce Agreement Might I Wish To Modify?

Here are a few examples of what you may want to change and why:

Spousal Support

If you are paying spousal support but recently lost your job, you may wish to reduce those payments until you can find stable employment. Or, if you receive spousal support, you may seek an increase if your ex-spouse received a significant raise. In other cases, if you are paying spousal support and find your ex is cohabitating with or marrying their new partner, you may seek to terminate your spousal support payments.

Child Support

Like spousal support, if you pay child support and lose your job, you may wish to reduce your payments until you find a new position. Or, if you receive child support and one of your children develops a serious medical condition, you may ask for an increase in child support payments to cover the costs.

Child Custody

You may ask for modifications to your child custody agreement for many reasons. Here are a few examples of when doing so may be beneficial:

  • You get a new job with different hours.
  • Your long-term injury or illness limits your ability to care for your child.
  • You or your ex-spouse move out of state.
  • Your children feel unsafe with your ex-spouse.
  • Any changes in your or your spouse’s schedule that could disrupt your kids’ schooling and extracurricular activities.
  • Your child develops specific needs that only you or your spouse can handle.

An experienced  family law attorney in Southern Minnesota can help ex-spouses find the best way to modify their post divorce agreements and ensure these renegotiations meet their needs.
