Florence Post-Divorce Modification Attorney

The orders that are established in the process of a Kentucky divorce are a direct reflection of the circumstances that existed at that time. If circumstances change over time, it may be possible to petition the court to modify the original orders. These are complex proceedings, and it is important that you seek the advice of a qualified attorney.

At the law office of attorney L. Craig Kendrick, we offer our clients a great deal of experience in the modification of divorce orders. Even if we did not handle your original divorce, we are fully prepared to provide the skillful representation you need to bring your orders in line with your current circumstances.

Understanding How Modifications Work

The court has broad discretion with regard to whether a modification is appropriate in a given case. Mr. Kendrick understands the criteria the courts use to make their determinations in these matters, and he knows how to present your case in a way that gives you the best chance of success. His experience representing clients on both sides of modifications allows him to provide much more effective representation in every case.

We represent clients in all types of post-divorce modifications, including:

  • Child support: If there has been a significant change in income for either parent since the divorce was finalized, it can create grounds for modification of the child support order. In addition, the order can be modified to eliminate support for a child who has reached the age of 18.
  • Spousal support: Like child support, spousal support can be modified in cases where either spouse has experienced a significant change in income. Remarriage or cohabitation can also serve as a catalyst for a spousal support modification.
  • Child custody and visitation: Modification of a custody agreement can be necessary when there has been a significant change in either parent's work schedule. Custody agreements would also need to be modified upon the relocation of either the noncustodial parent or the child.
