Modification of Decrees and Orders

In family law matters, the circumstances of parties often change over time making a previous court order out of touch with current finances and parenting issues. Sometimes, new facts are discovered which may have impacted the previous order had they been known at that time. In Utah, a decree involving family law matters such as custody, visitation, child support, and alimony may be modified if there is a substantial and material change in circumstances.

The laws governing modifications of decrees and orders vary depending on the type of modification desired.  Some modifications are simpler to accomplish than others and may be settled rather than litigated.  After evaluating your goals and the circumstances you believe have changed, a family law attorney at Dexter & Dexter can assist you in understanding your legal rights, likelihood of success, and managing your case to achieve the best possible outcome.
