Naperville Divorce Attorneys for Post-Divorce Issues

Family Law Firm in Naperville with Over 45 Years’ Experience

When a divorce is finalized, the dissolution of marriage ends in a divorce decree with specific terms for each ex-spouse to follow. However, the lives of both ex-spouses are bound to change over time, and modifications may need to be made to reflect that. Modifications are possible only within certain parameters, which is why you’ll need a skilled divorce lawyer in Naperville who is familiar with Illinois law. The Roscich & Martel Law Firm is experienced in post-decree divorce issues and will help protect your rights.

What Are Post-Divorce Decree Issues?

When spouses divorce, a decree is made that sets out the terms of the end of their marriage. This will include stipulations regarding division of debts and assets, allocation of property, alimony, child custody, child support, and so on. Modifications may be made to a divorce decree in Illinois if any of the following apply:

  • Substantial change in income. This could include an unforeseen change in income. It could entail decreased income such as losing a job, or getting a promotion/higher-paying job, receiving inheritance money, suffering a permanent disability that impedes your ability to earn further income, and so forth. Changes in income will affect alimony, or the money that one ex-spouse pays the other to maintain his/her pre-divorce lifestyle.
  • Child custody and maintenance concerns. Custody, visitation and maintenance of minor children are major factors in post-decree divorce issues, called “allocation of parental responsibilities,” in Illinois. Matters involving raising minor children are complicated and may involve visitation rights, child upbringing concerns, and other factors in the best interest of the children. Also, the way each parent contributes to the college tuition costs of any children is another concern that may affect a post-divorce decree.
  • New marriage. If one ex-spouse remarries, their divorce decree must be modified to reflect such a significant life event.
