"It may be necessary after litigation ends to file a modification action. Modification actions are based on specific legal circumstances that happen after a divorce. Modifications can be made in custody, visitation, child support, and alimony. It is essential that a competent attorney evaluate the factual circumstances and each party’s actions after the divorce to determine if they meet the legal requirements to go back to court. Many lawyers will file modifications without the proper legal threshold being met and the case is then dismissed by the judge."
