Concluding a separation or divorce with an agreement or court order is not always the end of the process. As life goes on, circumstances change. Children grow older and their needs change. Your circumstances or the circumstances of your former spouse may also change. These changes may require changes to your court order or divorce agreement.
A change in circumstances must be significant in order to revisit the original order or agreement. Usually the change is of such significance that the terms of your order or agreement are no longer appropriate or workable. At MDW Law in Halifax and Bedford our experienced family law lawyers can help you update and change your order or agreement. This may include resolving legal issues such as:
- Child custody, access and shared parenting;
- Child support including section 7 expenses; and/or
- Spousal support.
Changing your order or agreement may involve the court process, or may be achieved through negotiation or other forms of alternative dispute resolution. We will work with you to determine the best option for your particular circumstances. Please contact us at our Halifax office to find out how we can help you.
