Divorce Decrees – Can They Be Changed?

Answering Your Family Law Legal Questions in Irving, Texas

When you divorce, the courts prepare a divorce decree. The divorce decree sets forth the terms and conditions for your divorce, and may involve issues such as:

  • Spousal support
  • Child support
  • Child custody
  • Visitation
  • Property division

Terms set out when a divorce decree is created are usually intended to work in the short, medium and long term. It’s impossible, though, to fully anticipate the future needs of the divorcing parties. Parties’ circumstances, too, can change, through job loss or a new job, changing schedules, changing educational and medical needs of a child or the need for a parent to relocate.
