Post-Decree Modifications

Most people envision divorce as an ending - after the papers are signed, a divorce is final. But that is not necessarily so. If you need to transfer to a new location for work, have lost your job, or simply want to relocate with your children to a different city or state for a change of scenery, this type of change in lifestyle or work might require changes to a divorce decree or agreement, which must be approved by the court.

We know that the different types of post-decree modifications can have positive effects on their lives. The goal of a modification is to update a divorce decree so that it accurately reflects the lives of those it represents. If a divorce was finalized five years ago, for example, many aspects of life may have changed. Through a modification, individuals can address these changes and update their decrees to work for their current lives.

At Shapiro Family Law, we assist clients in post-decree modifications when they feel the terms of their current divorce agreement no longer reflect their lifestyles, or when they feel the agreement is unfair based on current circumstances.

Relocating With A Child

Divorce agreements may include travel restrictions for the custodial parent. There is also statutory and case law which address moving, i.e. relocating from Colorado with your children. Before modifying the agreement, the court must consider many factors to determine whether or not the intended move is best for the children or child. All of these issues can be very complicated and our Denver office, specializing in family law and post-decree modifications, will help you easily and successfully navigate the laws to make the best decisions for you and your children.
