Adapting to Life's Changes: Compassionate Support for Post-Judgment Modifications Tailored to Your Evolving Family Needs
Post-Judgement Modifications Overview
When parties have a substantial change in circumstance, that is permanent and not existing when the original Order was signed by the Court, requesting a Modification of that Order is necessary.
The changes may include relocation, remarriage, loss of a job, illness or injury, economic hardship, increase in financial circumstances, a change in dependent's status, disability and death.
You may have grounds to seek a modification as your children grow and have different needs and schedules if there is a material, permanent, and unanticipated change of circumstances, and such modification must be in the best interest of the child.
