Understanding Divorce Decrees

Our law firm can help you move forward

A divorce decree is, at least in theory, the final step in the process of divorce. It is an order issued by the court that covers all of the details, including child custody, child support, spousal maintenance and division of assets. This decree is binding on both divorced spouses, and it's important to follow those terms.

Reviewing your divorce decree with an experienced family law attorney is critical. Your attorney will be able to explain the decree in detail and answer any questions you might have. Having an understanding of the divorce decree will help you prepare as you move forward after you divorce. It will also help you identify areas that may need to be re-visited or changed. That's why we strongly recommend retaining a Mesa divorce attorney at Brown, Naegle, Crider & Jensen LLC to help with your divorce decree.

An attorney who is firmly in your corner

Remember, once a decree has been finalized, it is just that, final. It has significant legal weight and any changes need to be approved by a judge before going into effect. Mesa, Arizona divorce attorney Brad Crider makes it a point to take the time to review divorce decrees carefully with all of his clients. He'll use his experience and knowledge to help explain clearly what is outlined in the decree. If there are areas in the decree that need to be revised, Brad will advise his clients on what's feasible and what strategies are required to make a case.

If anything in your decree needs to be changed, it's important to take legal action right away. Making changes to an existing divorce decree can take months or even years. These changes are never done automatically, and they usually aren't retroactive - which means waiting even a relatively short time could have significant long-term consequences for you and your children.
