Modifications to a Divorce Agreement in Maryland

Things change. It is a simple fact of life. When a divorce decree is finalized, whether through a mutually amicable agreement or a decision of the Court, not all of the terms are necessarily set in stone. Typically, the terms set forth in a divorce decree relating to child custody and access, child support and alimony may be subject to change or modification at a later date, based upon a significant or material change of circumstances occurring since the time of the original decree or order. Experienced and knowledgeable family law attorneys can assist you with modifications to a divorce agreement, including changing the terms of a custody order or agreement, child support or spousal support (alimony).

In general, the terms of marital property division in Maryland are not subject to court modification absent some error by the Court or ambiguity that leads to good faith dispute in implementation of those terms. Additionally, parties may reach agreement pertaining to alimony and agree that its terms (as to amount and duration) will not be modifiable by any Court for any reason, or that it may be modifiable only in very limited or clearly defined circumstances.
