Modifications to Agreements

In the midst of a divorce, it can be tempting to settle quickly in order to move on with your life sooner rather than later. While this instinct is completely natural, experienced legal counsel will always assist you in thorough negotiations, so you end up in the best financial and emotional situation possible. Even with skilled representation, however, you may occasionally need to revisit the terms of your legal agreements, and make suitable adjustments based on changes in your life.

With Buckmaster & Ellzey, you may be able to secure modification orders for:

  • Child support
  • Child custody
  • Child visitation
  • Alimony payments
  • Other settlement terms

In most cases, a judge will ask to see evidence of the life changes that are forcing you to seek modification. This is why it is important to hire an attorney who knows how to position your case to make a strong argument to the court.

Reasons you may need to seek modification orders include:

  • Remarriage
  • Job loss
  • Child birth
  • Illness (yourself or your family)
  • Death in the family
  • Other serious life changes

What Else You Need to Know About Modifications

The court will usually grant a modification order if you can prove significant life changes. When you are asking for a modification order related to your child, you will have to prove it is in their best interests above all else. In matters of child support, custody, and visitation especially, you must be able to prove that any and all modifications will have a positive effect on your child, especially in relation to your current agreement. If, for instance, a custodial parent asks for a court order allowing them to move their child to another state, the court may or may not grant modification, depending on whether they believe this modification will positively impact the child, and whether it violates the non-custodial parent’s rights.
