Post-divorce modifications help families

Life rarely stays the same following a divorce which is why the family law process and post-divorce modifications are so important. Following a divorce, couples of families may find the need to modify a child support order or a child custody and visitation order. Alternately, one former spouse may oppose changing a child support or child custody order so it is important to understand the resources the family law process provides to help the different concerns families may face.

Post-divorce modifications include a change to child custody, visitation or parenting plans; a change to child support; or a change to alimony or spousal support. Child custody modifications may be granted based on substantial changes such as a job change, change of work schedule, health concerns, the loss of employment or some other substantial change. In addition, a child support modifications may be granted based on income changes, a change in employment or a change to a parenting plan.

Either parent can request a child custody change or a child support change. It is, however, important for parents to understand that they cannot simply refuse to follow a valid child custody agreement or child support order. It is important not to ignore a child support or child custody order, for instance, if a parent wants it changed but to use family law resources to seek a change.

The family law system helps families establish initial child custody agreements and child support orders, as well as provides resources to help families change child custody agreements and child support orders when needed. Life changes following a divorce which the family law process recognizes and accommodates to help families which the different needs that may arise for them down the road.
