When Can I Request a Modification?
You can request a modification if you experienced a substantial change in current circumstances that justifies a change in your current judgment. Often, child support may be modified through an administrative process. All other modification requests must be submitted to the court for approval. When you submit a modification request, you must be able to provide reasons that the modification is necessary at this time.
Modification can be granted in circumstances such as:
- Severe illness
- Dramatic change in income
- Threats posed to a child’s welfare
- Remarriage or cohabitation
Call (503) 743-0185 for Personalized Counsel
It is important that you talk to an attorney first about requesting a modification. You should never relocate or change the terms of your divorce agreement on your own. Doing so constitutes a violation of a court order and may lead to penalties.
Let our team of Tigard modification lawyers help you prepare a thorough and convincing modification petition that reflects your current needs and circumstances. We can personally guide you through the entire process, resolving any obstacles that arise and working towards a solution that you and your former spouse can agree on if possible, or will be determined by a judge if not.
We're ready to help you anywhere in Lake Oswego or Beaverton as well.
Give us a call at (503) 743-0185 if you would like to discuss further.
