What are Common Reasons for Court Order Modifications?
Most modification requests arise after there has been a major change in circumstances. Examples include:
Your ex-spouse may have gotten remarried, ending the need for spousal support.
You may have accepted a job in another state and need to relocate with your children.
You lost your job and can’t make payments on your current child support order.
Your ex-spouse became incapacitated or unable to take care of your children due to medical reasons
You believe your child is in danger while in the other parent’s custody due to domestic violence, drug abuse, tec.
Your ex-spouse is not complying with the current visitation schedule
