What Family Law Documents Can Be Modified?
At Pingel Family Law, we have extensive experience with the complex process involved with securing a modification to a court order. We understand that a modification may be needed for a wide range of reasons and are here to help. When you hire our firm, we will work diligently from the get-go to help you get a temporary or permanent modification approved based on your changing circumstances.
Modifications to divorce orders can be done in order to make changes to one or more of your:
- Child custody agreement
- Child support agreement
- Property and asset division
- Spousal support agreement
When Can You Request Modifications?
By law, any orders related to child support, parenting time, and legal decision-making must be reviewable by the Court until the children have been emancipated. Under certain circumstances, you have the right to request modifications to a parenting schedule. Modifications require that you have experienced a significant and material change in circumstances that directly affects your parenting plan and the child’s best interests.
You may be able to obtain a modification if:
- You need to relocate for work
- You’ve recently become unemployed
- The child is being abused
- The other parent is not upholding the agreement
There are other circumstances that may warrant a modification, but ultimately, the decision is at the court’s discretion unless you and the other parent can come to an agreement through mediation.
