You probably think your mediated, negotiated, litigated, uncontested, contested or high net worth divorce in Arizona is final, right? Even years after the fact, you think you are “home free.”
Nothing could be further from the truth. No divorce is ever really “final” because of how lifestyle circumstances can suddenly, dramatically change: a job loss, demotion or promotion; the need to look for a job in another state; the sudden burden of medical bills for treatment of an injury suffered in an accident; the need for specialized health care available only outside Arizona; your decision to remarry; a business or military transfer, to name just a few. All of these unexpected occurrences could cause you to seek a “modification” or revision of an obligation in your divorce settlement agreement, or compel you to contest one requested by your former spouse.
Economic hardships or windfalls can directly affect support responsibilities to your former spouse or your child or children. If you are a child’s primary custodian, you may need to relocate outside the state for any number of reasons. How do you continue support payments if you are the payer? How do you keep your family together when many relocation miles threaten to further separate you?
