Divorce Order Enforcement Attorneys Serving Batavia, St. Charles, and Throughout Kane County
In the years that follow your divorce, your family's situation and circumstances can change dramatically. Fortunately, the law in Illinois provides that the terms of your divorce settlement or judgment can be modified if and when such changes become necessary. At Mirabella, Kincaid, Frederick & Mirabella, LLC, our experienced family law attorneys help individuals and families request or contest modifications to orders for child support, parenting plans, parenting time schedules, and maintenance or alimony.
Due to the personal nature of the subject matter, post-divorce modification proceedings are often contentious, and negotiations can break down quickly. Our lawyers work hard to resolve modification cases as efficiently as possible while maintain an amicable relationship between the parties. When necessary, we are also equipped to aggressively advocate on behalf of our clients and their children in the courtroom as well.
Order Modification Lawyers in St. Charles
When you are seeking a modification to an existing order for parental responsibilities, child support, or maintenance, you will need to show that a significant change in circumstances has occurred. Most often, such changes are financial in nature, but may also include other considerations. You may qualify for a modification if:
- One party experiences a dramatic change in income;
- One party becomes unable to work;
- One party gets remarried or has another child;
- Your child's medical or educational needs change;
- One parent shows the inability to meet parental obligations; or
- One parent wishes to move out of the area.
In child-related matters, the court will consider the child's best interest when determining whether to grant the requested modification. If maintenance, or alimony, is in question, the court will consider the best interests of both parties in accordance with the applicable laws. Our attorneys can help you understand your circumstances and evaluate your chances of having your modification request approved.
