How to Modify Court Orders
In order to change the terms of your child support, visitation, child custody, or alimony order, you need to prove that there has been a significant change in circumstances involving your arrangement since it was ordered. The change in circumstances needs to have rendered the original plan undesirable, unreasonable, or maybe even impossible. An acceptable change in circumstances may include losing your job, sustaining a severe illness or injury, losing your house in a disaster, and more. Most modifications are contested matters because it usually means the other party will be getting less money in child support, less time with their child, or something similar.
However, modifications can be uncontested, which is when both parties:
- Are willing to work together.
- Agree that a modification is required.
- Agree to sign the required legal documents for the modification.
- Agree on all the changes related to child custody, child support, visitation, and spousal support issues.
Uncontested modifications are typically less expensive and take less time than contested modifications. However, since contested modifications are the more common type, our attorneys are always ready to fight on behalf of our clients in and out of the courtroom. You can trust us to protect your rights and best interests at each stage of the legal process.
