WHAT IS A MODIFICATION?
After divorce, there may still be issues that the parties of the divorce need to address. For example, a pre-established child custody plan or alimony amount may no longer be sufficient when the plan goes into action. A modification may be advised when one party’s circumstances change dramatically. When clients discover that they need to modify parts of their divorce settlement, the legal team at Rohe Law can help.
While the collaborative process can be an excellent tool for many couples seeking a dissolution, it also may be inappropriate in certain circumstances, such as where one party does not feel comfortable or capable of working alongside a spouse due to previous abuse or strife during the marriage. Additionally, even when a collaborative divorce may be appropriate and desirable, it is a process that is not well known to all family lawyers. Indeed, the collaborative process includes many complicated steps that require navigation by an experienced and collaboratively trained attorney.
When deciding whether the collaborative process is right for you, it is important to consult a firm that has experience participating in the collaborative process and can advise you of the advantages and disadvantages in light of the unique circumstances of your marriage. At Rohe Law, we have the experience and attorneys trained in the collaborative process that you need to help you decide whether the collaborative process is right for you. If you decide to engage in the process, our team of professionals can help you deftly and efficiently operate within the collaborative process and secure the best outcome for you and your family.
