The last year has taught us life can change in a snap. As time ticks, aspects of your life can morph and alter. This can especially happen after a divorce.
After the bell tolls for the “Final Judgment of the Dissolution of Marriage,” people tend to believe you are stuck with the terms of the divorce…not necessarily. When family dynamics change, divorce decrees, as they relate to child support, spousal support, and child custody, can often be modified to reflect these adjustments.
Our Westlake Village modification attorneys at the Law Offices of Stephanie L. Mahdavi can help you understand these circumstances and your options, providing a fresh and clear perspective for you to proceed down the best possible path.

If you or your former spouse are going through life changes—relocating to another state or major adjustments in income—the terms of your divorce decree may need to be modified concerning child custody, visitation, child, and spousal support. Our legal guidance can help you and your family achieve these modifications and continue to thrive under the court’s rulings.
