Charlotte Divorce Modification & Agreement Attorneys

Comprehensive Legal Services in Mecklenburg County

Most aspects of a divorce decree cannot be changed once a divorce is finalized. However, when it comes to child support, child custody, and child visitation, modifications may be appropriate and approved by a family law court under certain circumstances. Modifications to spousal support may also be called for if one or both spouses have a significant change in income or financial needs.

At Jetton & Meredith, we have the knowledge and resources to help our clients pursue all varieties of family law modifications.* We can also assist you with both prenuptial agreements and separation agreements.

Call (704) 931-5535 to discuss your needs with a lawyer.

Child Support Modifications

If your current child support arrangement does not reflect the reality of your or the other parent’s situation, it may be possible to have the payment amount modified. In order to do so, there must be a demonstrable change to a parent’s economic situation or the needs of the child.

Child Custody Modifications

You may seek a change in child custody and/or visitation because of the relocation of one or both parents. If you have primary custody of your children and wish to move out of state or out of the area, you may need to demonstrate to a family law court that the move is necessary and in the best interest of your child or children. For example, an increase in income for you because of a new job may give your child or children new advantages and opportunities. The best interest of your child will serve as the guiding principle in your child custody and visitation modification case.

Likewise, you need sound legal advice if the other parent of your child seeks to relocate and you wish to protest the proposed modification. Regardless of the circumstances of your situation, Jetton & Meredith can be there to help you navigate the process.

Agreements

Prenuptial and post-nuptial agreements are private, written contracts between the parties who either are about to marry or just married. These agreements outline how property will be divided and support determined should the marriage between the parties end in divorce.

You can use a prenuptial agreement to:

  • Protect yourself from your spouse’s debts
  • Make distinctions between separate and marital property
  • Pass on inheritance to children from previous relationships
  • Protect family heirlooms and property
  • Provide instructions on how to distribute property in the event of divorce

    Jetton & Meredith also helps couples seeking a separation agreement. It is often more efficient for divorcing spouses to avoid the courts, if possible, and enter into their own out-of-court settlement. A separation agreement, also known as a property settlement agreement, is a private, written, legally binding contract that provides for the settling of all issues involved in the case. Our attorneys are experienced in negotiating, preparing, and reviewing separation agreements.
