Once a divorce is finalized, is there a way to later make modifications?
Shelly McKeon: While divorce signals the end of a marriage, it is not always the final word on how two parties will move forward with their lives. Life changes. Kids get older. One of you might get a new job, become disabled or move away. Sometimes, the other person isn’t sticking to what you agreed on or what a court ordered. While some aspects of divorce aren’t changeable, there are often fixes that can be negotiated or pursued through the court. For issues that need to be modified from an original divorce, an experienced family law attorney can guide you to a resolution that addresses your concerns.

What issues fall under the category of “family law” which your firm could help me with?

The firm has extensive experience with settlement negotiations and trial litigation involving custody and visitation; enforcement, contempt and modification of prior orders; domestic violence; child, spousal, and retroactive support. We deliver the perspective as well as the experience to help you with your family law issue.
