Chicago Divorce Modification Lawyers

Modify Custody, Visitation & Support

Modifying a divorce agreement can be tricky. Luckily, our team of attorneys at Kogut & Wilson L.L.C. have over 20 years of experience and will work to protect your best interests. We collaborate with you to accomplish your goals efficiently and with the high level of service you need.

Modifying Custody Arrangements

Though it is much easier to change the rules of a custody agreement after two years have passed, our Chicago divorce attorneys can help you modify a judgment less than two years after it has been created. However, you may be required to prove the child is seriously threatened by the environment they are living in to modify judgment before the two-year time period. If this applies to you, contact our team at Kogut & Wilson L.L.C. immediately to receive counsel on the subject.

Reasons to seek a modification could include:

  • Loss of job
  • Serious injury or disability
  • Loss of job or pay decrease
  • Moving away

You can also request to modify a custody agreement to gain an increased amount of custody if the other parent is behaving negligently. These circumstances include allegations of child abuse, endangering the child’s mental or physical health or if the other parent has displayed criminal behavior.
