Minnesota Post-Decree Modification

Generally speaking, a party may motion to modify a previously issued order if there have been a “substantial change” in the parties’ circumstances making the existing order’s award unreasonable under the current circumstances. This will normally result from a substantial change in income of one or both parties, or a substantial change in the living situation of one or both parties.

Common circumstantial changes may include:

  • Substantial changes in living costs
  • Unforeseen medical costs
  • Change to amount of benefits received
  • Substantial change in income
  • Substantial change in child care costs
  • Emancipation of a child
