Cape Girardeau Divorce Attorney: Legal Help From Initial Decree to Modifications
A divorce is rarely 100 percent over; it is often subject to being modified. In Missouri, a 20 percent change in circumstances is required to make a motion to modify an original divorce judgment. This threshold is used for determining if the change in circumstances is significant enough to go back to court and modify.
Change in circumstances can mean change in job and title, resulting change in income, moving to a new home or out of state, or a new marriage. All of these can affect custody arrangements, support and visitation.
At Birk Law Firm, we can help you file a lawsuit to establish visitation with your grandchildren. We can also help moms who are frustrated with ex-husbands who are not paying child support. You and your children deserve enough to live on.
With all clients, we listen to what is going on in your life and how we can make it better. As your lawyer, we will try to resolve the situation amicably, but are ready to take action when necessary.
