Post Decree Modifications in Illinois
Experienced Schaumburg and Wheaton Divorce Lawyers Provide After Divorce Legal Representation
Family law judges know that a divorce does not set a newly separated family's circumstances in stone. People's lives and needs change. Post decree modifications are often called for in cases such as the following:
- One former spouse experiences a great increase or decrease in income due to a promotion, a job loss, a medical condition or remarriage
- One or another divorced parent wishes to move out of town, change allocation of parental responsibility, and parenting time (or visitation) arrangements to match demands of a new job, or seek more time with a child
