Team Up With a Divorce Lawyer Now - (512) 420-0555!
When a divorce is finalized, the final legal paperwork is known as a
divorce decree. These decrees are legally binding and cannot be changed; however, an
Austin family law attorney could assist you in modifying portions of your decree under certain circumstances.
At FMLT, we understand that your life can change after a divorce, and
sometimes, there will be a need to modify portions of your divorce decree
to help ensure continued support, assistance, and legal compliance in
your post-dissolution lives.
If you need a modification,
contact the divorce attorneys at our Austin firm right away.
Life Changes. Your Court Orders Should Change with It.
Most divorce decrees and court orders regarding possession of children
or child support are rendered on the basis of a set of facts that naturally
change over time. Under certain changed circumstances,
child custody and/or child support orders can be modified to fit a current or impending
situation, such as a new job or the reality of one party wanting to move.
These are only a few examples of circumstances that may merit modification.
There are many ways that current court orders may no longer be in the
best interest of the children or the parties and have in fact become inappropriate.
Reasons for Requesting a Modification
Someone may need a modification for many reasons after a divorce. If you
are facing any complications with your divorce terms, FMLT may be able to help.
Possible reasons for obtaining a modification include:
- You are looking to move away from the area where your divorce was finalized
- A sudden illness or medical emergency involving a minor child requires
additional financial assistance
- A change in employment status has occurred for one of the ex-spouses
- Visitation schedules or parenting time commitments need to be modified
for other reasons
Of course, each person's situation is unique, and your options may
vary when it comes to obtaining a modification. If you are looking to
make a modification or enforce a modification, we encourage you to contact
