Modifications of Orders

Changing Custody & Support Orders in Orange County

A major change in one’s life may warrant a change in existing court orders related to custody or support. When this occurs, it is important to work with an attorney who can help you take the appropriate steps to legally modify the order or orders. A verbal agreement or a change without your ex-spouse’s knowledge could backfire, negatively impacting your financial situation and time with your children. In extreme cases, criminal charges could even be filed against you.

Reasons for Modification

Typically, the Courts will look for a change in circumstances that is substantial enough to justify a modification. If children are involved, their best interests will also be given considerable importance, as a modification should not degrade conditions for a child or harm him/her in any way. That is why it is so important for your lawyer to prepare a clear and persuasive case on your behalf to request a modification or challenge a requested modification.

The following are examples of circumstances that may warrant a change of child custody, spousal support, visitation, or child support:

  • Significant increase or decrease in income
  • Job loss
  • Incarceration
  • Significant changes in the amount of time a child spends with each parent
  • A change in the child’s medical or educational needs
  • Remarriage
  • Relocation
