Modifying Decrees

Post-Decree Modifications in Los Angeles

Does your child want to spend more time with you? Has your ex received a raise in pay? If circumstances have changed significantly since your spousal support, child support, custody, or visitation order was issued, the court will consider a request for post-decree modification. We at Stolar & Associates, A Professional Law Corporation represent individuals before, during, and after divorce. We can help you pursue the post-decree modification you need to reflect your situation's new circumstances.

Will Modifying a Custody or Support Order Affect Your Child?

Our dedicated law firm has been representing parents in Southern California courts for nearly 70 combined years. As your attorneys, we will help you consider all your legal options, including a variety of parenting plans. We will discuss how a change will affect your relationship with your child and how it will affect your financial security.

After you have decided how to proceed, we will frame an argument to present your position in the strongest way. If you feel your child is at risk if he or she returns to the other parent's home, we will request that the court take immediate action while the matter is investigated.

Reasons a Court May Grant a Post-Decree Modification

The court may grant an order for post-decree modification for a variety of reasons:

  • There has been a significant change in income (yours or your ex's).
  • Your child's needs have changed due to medical expenses, a special class, or an activity.
  • Your child has grown to a stage where a change in custody will benefit the child.
  • The custodial parent is relocating and a change will allow the child to remain.
  • The custodial parent is moving, a move-away order has been issued allowing the parent to take the child out of state, and a different custody and visitation arrangement is needed.
  • A child's school hours, sports, or other activities require a change in the parenting plan.

We Treat Our Clients Like Family

  • They went to war for me.

    “This Law firm is truly the best team I have ever had the pleasure of working with. They are worth every penny that you pay them and more. I hadn't seen my daughter in almost 2 years and they went to war for me. I mean it was crazy how hard they worked to get me my parental rights. Their team is so strong that my baby's mother's law firm had to send 3 lawyers just to battle one of Steven's well-trained lawyers. He fought off 3 soulless devils and finally won custody /visitation for me. Robert Curtis is a warrior in the courtroom and totally destroyed the evil lawyers that were trying their best to burn down my life. Anthony is an incredible lawyer too. He is just amazing support. Their assistant Jenny is the greatest thing next to being your mother because of the way that she sincerely cares about you during the process. I truly used to despise lawyers until I met Steven Stolar and his associates. They are like the Super Friends of Law Firms!!!!! Steven Stolar for Mayor!!!!!!!!!”
