You Can Request Modifications of Custody and Support Orders
Unfortunately, divorce is not always the end of legal disputes for parents. Since a divorce decree or child support order is based on facts that are present at the time of a legal proceeding, any significant change of circumstances may make a previous court order seem inappropriate. Often, if parents divorce when their child is very young, it is difficult to foresee all of the possible changes that may take place over time.
When changes occur that significantly change the financial circumstances of the parties or threaten the best interests of a child, a modification may be an appropriate course of action. At the Vaught Law Firm in Austin, Texas, we represent clients in a broad range of modification proceedings, including:
- Child custody modifications
- Visitation modifications
- Child support modifications
- Parental relocation disputes
Before you initiate legal proceedings to seek a modification of a divorce order, child support order or other family law order, it is critical you speak with an experienced family law attorney to make sure you receive sound legal advice.
