The orders in a divorce decree take into account a set of factors as they exist when the divorce occurs. However, over the course of time, circumstances can change that make some of the original divorce orders seem obsolete. A family law lawyer can assist you if you've experienced life changes that call for a modification of your child support, child custody, visitation or spousal support arrangements.
If you need help obtaining or preventing a modification to your divorce order, contact us online today. You may also call (714) 550-7229 to schedule a free consultation.Post-Divorce Modification of Court Orders
At the Law Offices of Friske & Hilliard, our attorneys have extensive experience with post-divorce modification of court orders. With a focus on protecting our clients' interests, we can help you make sure your arrangements reflect your current situation. Our goal is to make sure all of our clients are treated fairly and equitably.
Specifically, our attorneys, Albert Friske and Stefanie Hilliard, can assess your needs and file appropriate motions in court for modification of a child support, visitation or child custody, or spousal support order that is no longer applicable. In many cases, Albert and Stefanie can also use alternative methods of reaching agreements.Modifying Child Support and Spousal Support
In California, a parent can modify a child support order if life changes warrant it. In recent years, the most common change involves a reduction in income that one parent has experienced due to difficult economic conditions. If you have experienced a job loss that is making it difficult for you to pay child support, talk to an attorney as soon as possible, since modification does not work retroactively.
Relocation and custody changes can also prompt the need to modify child support orders. By the same token, income changes, remarriage and other factors can make modification of spousal support possible.Modifying Child Custody and Visitation
A job change, a relocation, or a change to a child's schedule or needs can form the basis of a modification of child custody or visitation orders. If your situation requires it, our attorneys can help you work out a post-divorce modification as smoothly and efficiently as possible. We are experienced with situations involving parent and child relocation within California and out of state.Contact Our Firm Today for a Free Consultation
