Going through a divorce is never easy, which is why it is important to have an experienced attorney on your side. At the Women’s Divorce & Family Law Group, we know decisions made during these proceedings have the potential to impact you for years into the future. In some cases, situations change or new information comes to light that requires changes be made to a divorce agreement. As experienced Chicago divorce modification attorneys, you can trust us to file the legal actions needed to ensure your rights are protected.

Modifying Your Existing Divorce Order

Under the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act (750 ILCS 5), there are certain issues which must be addressed before a divorce order becomes final in your case. These include:

At the Women’s Divorce and Family Law Group, we have decades of combined experience that we bring to each case. This helps to ensure our clients get the best possible divorce settlement. However, there are cases in which circumstances change or new information is obtained, which could impact the settlement you received. In these types of situations, we may be able to file a divorce modification, asking that the final order is amended to reflect these changes.

Reasons You May be Entitled to a Divorce Modification

Before filing any legal documents with the Cook County Circuit Court, our Chicago divorce modification attorneys will carefully review your case to ensure that any changes are warranted.

In general, the circumstances surrounding the situation must be significant enough for the judge to reopen your case. Situations in which this may be an option include:

  • Both parties agree to certain changes in the order;
  • Significant material changes have occurred since the order was issued;
  • There is evidence your spouse hid assets or was otherwise deceptive during the original proceedings;
  • Either the judge or the attorney involved made an error in your case.
