When Are Modifications Needed?
Life changes, and many times existing legal orders must be modified to reflect present-day reality. In the realm of family law, there are many times when a post-decree modification is necessary. For example:
- Custody orders may need to be modified to accommodate changing schedules. Other reasons for custody modifications include a parent wishing to move or a child’s changing needs and wishes.
- Child support orders may need to be modified due to a job loss or change in income. Support modifications may also be necessary if a child’s needs change significantly.
- When a child goes to college, parents may need to modify orders to establish a new framework for providing support.
- Maintenance, formerly known as alimony orders, may change under certain circumstances, such as when the receiving spouse remarries or becomes self-sufficient.
