Your post-divorce life may well involve a change in your circumstances which was unforeseen at the time that your divorce was finalized. Many things can trigger a change in your circumstances.
A change in circumstances often involves either party’s full or partial loss of employment. This change in employment status can be temporary or permanent, and each situation requires compliance with very specific court rules and case law.
Another example especially relevant today is the issue of payment for college by divorced parents at a time when the allocated share determined at the time of the divorce may become prohibitive for one party.
There are times after an agreement is entered where it would be proper for the Court to vacate such an agreement. There are specific standards and requirements for modifying child support, alimony, equitable distribution, and for vacating an agreement.
It is recommended that you consult with experienced counsel should a change in circumstances prompt the need to modify an existing order.
