Modification

Sometimes things change after a final order of divorce or suit affecting the parent-child relationship has been entered. People move, people marry, people change or lose jobs – it’s called life. When the circumstances are significant, they affect the rights, duties, and obligations of those caring for children. Most frequently, there is a need to adjust child support amounts or change the possession schedule. This is the time one may go back to the courtroom and request that the previous orders be modified to reflect the new circumstances. It is especially necessary when children are put at risk, due to neglect or substance abuse, major illness or disability. When the court finds that it is in the “best interest of the children” to make changes, the paramount concern, it does.
