    Grounds For Modifications

    You must show a material change in your circumstances to obtain a modification of visitation, child support or other order. Things such as job loss, remarriage, illness or disability, jail sentences or a move-away are common reasons to modify an agreement. Whatever your reason for seeking or opposing a modification, our family law attorney can help you accomplish your goals.

    Advice About Enforcement

    In some instances, parents become unable to make child support payments and simply stop. A parent may become chronically late when picking up the child because of a change in work hours. A third scenario involves unreported parental relocation. In all these situations, it would be better to seek a modification that reflects your changed circumstances. If you do not, the court can enforce the original orders with negative consequences to you.
