What Are the Different Types of Modifications?

Nearly any aspect of a divorce decree can be changed after the fact in California under the right circumstances. To pursue a modification, you must petition with the court and convince the judge to change your divorce agreement. Generally speaking, modifications will only be granted if they are justified by a substantial change in circumstances from time the order was made.
