Life is forever changing. There are occasions when it may be necessary to seek a modification of a marital agreement or standing court order relating to family law issues. In most cases, a request for a post judgment family law modification will be met with resistance from the other party. Therefore, in order to provide the best opportunity to obtain a successful change to an existing court order, you should seek the legal advice and representation of experienced legal counsel.
In order for the courts to provide a forum to modify an existing family law court order, you must show that situations or conditions of either party have significantly changed, and a modification may be warranted.
Points of interest which may qualify for a modification claim often include a change of employment status and income of either party, one of the parents chooses to move away from the area of jurisdiction, a child is not doing well under the current time sharing plan, or other relevant changes in family law related conditions.

Post judgment marital and family law modification requests may include:
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.
Generally, a 15% or better increase or decrease in the ordered child support will be considered a substantial change in circumstances
Child Custody or Visitation Modifications: A parent may make a request to change the existing child custody or visitation court order 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 they can demonstrate a substantial change in the circumstances surrounding the spousal support / alimony.
