Call my firm to find out if your situation qualifies for a modification in your divorce agreement. I can carefully review your case and represent you in front of the courts.
How to Modify Your Divorce Agreement
To amend an agreement, you should begin by filing a petition for modification with your local court. The petition may ask for information such as your contact info, your former spouse's contact info, case number, and judge who granted your divorce. You may also need to list out the reasons that you would like to amend your divorce and specify which parts of the decree that you would like to change. Along with the petition, you should include related financial or civil documents, and SSN verification.
Once you have all the right documents, you should submit your form to the court. After it is processed and the other party has been served, they will assign a hearing date. At the hearing, you will have a chance to explain why your petition should be approved. To ensure that you have proper representation at the hearing, call my firm for a Honolulu divorce lawyer that will stand up for your rights.
