How Can I Modify My Divorce Decree in California?
There two ways to petition for a modification to your divorce decree:
- File an appeal with the California District Court of Appeals
- File a motion to modify your divorce decree with the court where your divorce was finalized.
Accepted Reasons for Modification in California
Sudden and substantial shifts in circumstance often call for revisions or modifications to the child custody, visitation, and financial support portions of your California divorce settlement agreement.
Reasons you may want to modify your divorce include the following:
- You and your ex-spouse have come to an agreement that differs from the original court orders.
- Your circumstances have significantly changed since the court orders were given.
- You believe the court made an error that resulted in an unfavorable ruling.
