REVISITING DIVORCE AND CHILD SUPPORT DECREES
When a divorce is finalized, the agreement reflects current circumstances. As those circumstances change with time, however, adjustments to the original divorce agreement may be appropriate. Specific requirements must be met and a compelling argument must be made for the court to approve the modification of a divorce agreement.

Keep The Divorce Agreement In Line With Your Circumstances
Depending on the type of modification you are seeking, the court will consider several factors in reviewing your request.

I have worked with Anna on numerous cases and have always found her to be extremely knowledgable and very caring. She is able to advocate for her clients and at the same time works effectively with all of her other colleagues. I would highly recommend Anna for anyone in need of an attorney in the divorce process.
Dr. John Mundt
Divorce can’t ever be stress-free, even when it’s “amicable” as mine was, but Anna shepherded me through this process in a way that truly minimized the anxiety and uncertainty for me. She combines extensive expertise ( including about the collaborative divorce process in my case) with a steady, always-engaged presence that always had me feeling that I was in good hands. She was easily reached, and she was frank, patient and pragmatic with my numerous questions and concerns. Her office staff are pleasant and efficient. Under the circumstances, this experience was as quick and painless as it could have been; if divorce is necessary, you will make a good choice in retaining Anna!
