Newark Divorce Modification Lawyer

People's lives change more rapidly than ever. Long-term unemployment, remarriage, a job that requires you move to another city or state, or any number of other factors can make initial court orders in a divorce inappropriate.

If you feel as though your divorce decree needs to be modified, contact Carl McCoy for guidance.

Modifying Your Divorce Decree in Ohio

A change in financial circumstances of the parties or in the needs of a child may necessitate the modification of an existing child support or spousal support order. The need to relocate your residence because of a job opportunity or a new spouse may require a custody modification or changes to a shared parenting plan.

At the office of McCoy & McCoy, Attorneys at Law, in Newark, Ohio, we have represented clients in post-divorce modification matters for more than 30 years. We also represent individuals who want to block a modification request.
