I am Daniel G. Dannenbaum, and as a skilled family law attorney with more than 20 years of experience, I can work on your behalf to attempt to modify the terms of your divorce if your circumstances or your ex-spouse's circumstances have changed.
If you come to my law firm in Arlington, Virginia, for a consultation, I will review your divorce settlement and prenuptial agreement, ask you about why you or your ex-spouse believes a modification is necessary, and provide you with practical legal advice about what your options are.
Seasoned Family Law Attorney Helping Fairfax Residents With Alimony, Custody And Child Support Modifications
To successfully modify your divorce agreement, you must prove that circumstances warrant a modification. If any one of the following is true since the divorce was finalized, there might be the need for a modification:
- Does the parent with primary custody wish to move out of state with the child?
- Has the noncustodial parent experienced a substantial change in income?
- Does the alimony recipient still need alimony payments to support himself or herself?
- Has the parent with primary custody's lifestyle changed in a way that is not in the child's best interests?
It is important to note that you will not be able to modify alimony if your original prenuptial agreement or divorce settlement says that the alimony is not modifiable. With the help of a family law lawyer, however, you can always attempt to modify child custody and child support.
