Modify or Change Divorce Decree

After a divorce is finalized, the judge issues written orders within the final divorce decree. If a significant change in circumstances a divorce decree may be able to be modified. A divorce decree may be modified in regards to custody, support, visitations, or geographical restrictions. Changes are part of life, a modification allows parties to make the needed changes to the decree to reflect the life changes.  The majority of times most divorce decrees cannot be modified until 1-year after the divorce is final.
