What Can Be Modified In A Divorce Order?
While a divorce decree will signify a permanent termination of your marital status, there are still other aspects of your final order that may be subject to modification. Awards of child custody and visitation, child support and alimony are eligible for reconsideration when there has been a significant change in the circumstances of either party or one of the children.
We strive to make certain family law orders are in accordance with current circumstances. Therefore, we make ourselves available to revisit existing family law orders and work for modification of such orders when necessary.
When Can You Seek A Modification?
Ordway Law Group, LLC, is one of the premier family law firms in Georgia today. While we are widely recognized for our ability to obtain favorable outcomes during the divorce process, we are equally capable of achieving victories in post-decree modification matters. Serving both petitioners and respondents in these complicated and highly contested cases, we call upon our experience to find effective resolutions.
Modifications are not easily obtained, and issuance depends on a substantial life change such as:
- Loss of employment
- Significant increase in salary
- Parental relocation
- Change in a child’s medical needs
- Onset of chemical or alcohol dependency
- Recovery from an addiction
- Domestic abuse
- Contempt issues/failure to comply with a portion of the divorce order

Whether we are promoting your position in negotiation or at trial, we will call upon our experience and long history of success to skillfully advocate on your behalf.
