Divorce decrees are not written in stone. They are established to reflect the current situation when two parties get divorced. Over time, circumstances can change. Modifications may need to be made in child custody, child support or alimony, if you or your former spouse have experienced significant change in your living situations. This is a highly complicated area of the law that can lead to bitter disputes.
