Modification Of Child Support, Custody And More

Following a divorce, parents often have reasons for seeking modifications of child support, custody and visitation. Common occurrences include relocation due to work, the remarriage of a former spouse, consensual adoption of a child by a family member, and allegations of physical or sexual abuse by a parent or stepparent.

Other grounds that might warrant a modification of a decree include:

  • Unhappiness of a child with his/her living or custodial arrangements
  • Neglect of a child by a custodial parent or guardian, or non-custodial parent or guardian
  • Change of parent's city or state
  • Change in quality of living arrangements or environment
  • Change in parent or guardian's work arrangements (unemployment, income, working nights, etc.)
  • Military deployment

Regardless of the modification you seek, our skilled attorneys can discuss your circumstances, evaluate your legal options, and develop a legal strategy to realize your goals. Generally, we must prove to the court that a substantial change of circumstances has occurred that alters the context of the original agreement.
