Once an order of the court is in place making an award of custody, child support, spousal support, or visitation, that order is subject to modification at given points thereafter. The issue is modifiable by either party until such time as no such support obligation exists or the child(ren) are over the emancipated age pursuant to your individual court order. Modifications always require a significant “change in circumstances” such as a change in income of either or both parties, an increase in the needs of the child(ren) involved, a significant non-compliance with visitation as ordered, or an extreme circumstance which may warrant a change in custody. There are many, many reasons justifying a modification of any provision — from the amount of support to the timing of visitation. Sit down with one of our attorneys and let us help you modify the order to better reflect the facts of your case.
