We know that families grow and change over the years. At a certain point, court-imposed judgments may no longer work in the best interest of all family members. When this occurs, a party may pursue a modification to child custody or support.
In order to do so, a number of factors must be considered in a modification proceeding, including the possible need to show a substantial change in circumstance since the last order was issued to the non-custodial or custodial parent.
Some examples can be a career, job, or relocation change which could justify modification or a significant change in income of one of the spouses. In addition, a child reaching adulthood may affect support obligations also.
If you wish to seek a modification, a skilled lawyer is an ideal asset to have to justify your changes. These issues can be a head-ache so having an experienced advocate on your side is extremely beneficial in these situations.
