When Circumstances Change After Divorce
When a divorce is finalized in Utah, there are many smaller agreements included in the order to dissolve the marriage. Child custody and support, spousal support, property division, retirement accounts and many other issues create ongoing obligations that are determined based on the circumstances that exist at the time of the divorce.
Some of these commitments cannot be changed once the divorce is finalized — but others can: custody, visitation (or parenting time), support and alimony may be changed if the circumstances of the spouses change to a sufficient degree.
