Helping You Navigate Through Life’s Transitions

Do You Need To Modify An Existing Order?

Families grow and change — this is a given. At a certain point, court-imposed judgments may no longer work in the best interest of all family members. When this happens, a party may pursue a modification to custody or support.

There are a number of factors that must be considered in a modification proceeding, including the possible need to show a substantial change in circumstance since the last order was entered. For example, a career or job change or relocation may justify modification, or a significant change in income of one of the spouses may require a support modification. In addition, a child reaching adulthood may affect support obligations.

If circumstances are such that you wish to seek a modification, a skilled lawyer is an ideal asset. These issues can be nuanced and context driven, so having an experienced advocate on your side is extremely beneficial.
