Family Law Modifications

When a divorce in finalized, or other family issues have been approved or ruled upon by the courts, the resolutions are considered court orders which cannot be legally changed unless a modification to the standing court order has been approved and authorized or ordered by the court which has jurisdiction.

In order to seek a post-judgment family law modification, one or both parties must show cause due to significant changes financially, or the development of a physical or mental condition which affects the ability to adhere to the current standing court order.

Family Law Post-Judgment Modifications are typically associated with:

  • Child Support Modifications: A parent may make a request to change the existing court-ordered amount of child support owed when a substantial change in the circumstances surrounding the support of the child can be effectively demonstrated to the court. However, any modification must still be in the best interest of the child or children.

  • Child Custody or Visitation Modifications: A parent may make a request to change the existing child custody or visitation court orders if a significant change in circumstances exist to warrant a modification of the current child custody and visitation orders. However, any modification must still be in the best interest of the child or children.

  • Spousal Support/Alimony Modifications: A spouse may make a request to change the existing court-ordered amount of spousal support/alimony owed if he or she can demonstrate a substantial change in the circumstances surrounding the spousal support/alimony which warrants the alteration of an alimony award.
