Court Order Modifications
We all face changes of life circumstances at one time or another. A new job, the loss of a job, a new spouse or a relocation can dramatically affect your ability to follow an existing court order.
Three types of Court Orders that might need to be modified are:
- Child custody: A judge will consider a child custody modification if it is in the best interests of the child.
- Child support: If a child’s needs change or a parent’s income dramatically increases or decreases, a modification may be necessary.
- Spousal support: There are many reasons a spousal support order should change, including remarriage of the receiving spouse and a change in the paying spouse’s income.

Are you planning to relocate with your minor child?
A parent may need to move to a different city or state for many reasons, including a job opportunity or urgent family matter.
