Post-Divorce Modifications · Changes to Child Support and Spousal Maintenance
When a job is lost, a promotion is achieved or a serious illness requires specialized, expensive health care, obligations under the divorce decree such as child support, spousal support or visitation may need to be revised.

Ernst of the law offices of Carr, O'Rourke & Ernst can help you make the changes you need to your divorce decree. For more than 30 years, Roland P.

Adjustments in Support for Changes Occurring After Your Divorce
Once a child support or spousal support obligation has been established, it is not permanent. A modification of support may be possible in circumstances such as:
Significant changes in income such as promotions, pay cuts or loss of job
Illness or disability suffered by a parent or child
A growing child's more demanding financial needs
A spouse receiving maintenance remarries or lives with a new boyfriend or girlfriend
Adjustments to Child Custody and Visitation
Sometimes situations arise where the child visitation schedule may be required to be changed. This may arise when there is a change in an employment schedule, or a spouse wants to remove the children from the state of Illinois. Sometimes because of significant changes it may be in the child's best interest that child custody be changed.
