Post Judgment Divorce Modifications

Changes often happen in the lives of divorced partners after the divorce settlement and judgment has been made which impact the orders in those judgments. This may be especially true for divorced parents with children. California law provides specific ways for seeking post judgment changes or modifications in the original judgment. Such changes may need to be made concerning issues such as child custody, child support, visitation, spousal support, or other matters.

Reasons for a California Post Judgment Modification

Many situations may arise which call for a change in the divorce judgment. Among them is the loss of employment, change of employment, a significant loss or increase of income, the necessity for relocation of either parent, or a significant change in the cost of caring for a child either because of accident, injury, illness, or some other event. Other reasons may prompt a need for a modification, such as a child’s strong desire to reside with the non-custodial parent or a child not doing well under the care of the existing custodial parent.
