Modifications of Orders
Life goes on after divorce. Children get older, their needs change, and the financial support that allows them to do things they and their parents would like them to do also changes. Parties may advance in their careers and their financial circumstances may change, for better or for worse. Many factors may make Permanent Orders issued at the time of divorce obsolete and in need of modification.
A couple of years down the road, changes may be needed to permanent orders regarding parenting time schedules, child support, and/or maintenance. In each case, a Motion to Modify initiates the modification process. Like the initial divorce process, modified orders can be reached through parties’ mutual agreement, with the help of a mediator, or with the help of a Collaborative team.
