When applying for a post-decree modification, you must collect evidentiary support. This can include financial records, medical records, or any type of documentation outlining and proving your need to modify an agreement.
As your post-decree modification lawyer, we can then represent your case at a hearing. It can take a while to secure a hearing date. However, after listening to both parties and reviewing the facts, the judge makes a decision at the hearing.
A hearing can take time to schedule. Depending on the nature of your changed circumstances, such as domestic violence or abuse, or a financial emergency, we can request an expedited hearing.
Do not hesitate to ask a lawyer for an emergency hearing. If waiting for a court date could negatively affect your children, an emergency hearing may be the right course of action.
