When Can a Court Order Be Modified?

At Meinerts Law, we understand that when your life changes drastically and unexpectedly, it can cause a great deal of stress. Even if you and your ex-spouse can come to an agreement on the proposed changes, you cannot simply change the terms without going through the proper legal process. We are here to help guide you through the modification process as smoothly as possible.

We can help you with the following types of modifications:

  • Child support modifications: If your financial situation has changed and you can no longer pay as much money or your child's needs have increased, the amount of child support being paid should change too.
  • Child custody and visitation modifications: Is the other parent of your child not caring properly for them? Or has your schedule changed and you would like to spend more time with your child? We can help you change your visitation schedule or custody agreement.
  • Alimony/spousal support modifications: Have you been receiving spousal support and suddenly had an improvement in circumstances? Or have you been paying and want to revisit the amount you owe?
