Modifying Previous Family Law Orders

How a Marina Del Rey Divorce Attorney Can Help

After the courts have made a divorce or support order, there are some situations in which one or both parties may request a change. Usually these situations involve a dramatic shift in circumstances, and the individual seeking the change must file a motion for modification. Because of the complexity surrounding child support, spousal support, child custody, and other family law cases, it is important that you retain a knowledgeable family law attorney in Marina Del Rey to help you file your modification. At Marmolejo Law, we offer free phone consultations and are standing by to answer your questions.

Grounds for Filing a Modification of Child Support & Custody

While a parent is legally required to pay child support, there are sometimes life events that make modifications to support orders necessary. Even when parents are in agreement, modifications have to be processed through the court system and must be approved by a family law judge. In order to avoid negative consequences, it is always a good idea to consult a Marina Del Rey family law attorney to help you file your modification and to guide you throughout the process.

Grounds for filing a modification of child support or custody include:

  • Income change for one or both parents
  • A parent has lost a job
  • A parent has become incarcerated
  • The child/children’s needs have changed
  • Abuse, neglect, or other issues that may make a household unsafe for a child
