How Are Family Court Orders Modified?
Child Custody Modifications
Modifications to child custody orders may occur for various reasons.
These reasons can include:
- A change in the needs and schedules of children as they mature
- A change in the parents’ work schedules
- A parent begins a new job
- A parent wishes to relocate due to remarriage, employment changes, or other substantial reasons
- A drastic change in the health of a parent or a child
If you and your spouse agree to the modification, you can submit it to the court. The court may approve the change if it believes it is in the best interests of the child. If you and your spouse do not agree, you will have to appear before the court stating your case. If you are the petitioning spouse, the burden of proof will rest with you that the modification is necessary and will benefit your child.
Child Support Modifications
Modifications to child support orders can also be requested through the courts. The parent requesting the change will have to demonstrate a substantial change in his or her financial condition or it may be modified due to a change in custody.
Whatever type of modification you seek, Ver Beek Law, Prof. L.L.C. offers guidance and legal assistance to help you move forward with your request.
