We Are Here to Help You Through the Legal Process
Providing Sound Guidance & Strong Representation
The legal order put in place after your divorce occurs is based on the situation at the time. Many months or years later, you may experience a change in circumstance that requires a modification of your divorce order. No matter the reason, whether it may be losing your job or a change in your child's needs, you must take the proper legal action to seek a modification. If your situation has changed and you need a divorce order modified, our Austin modifications lawyer at the office of Attorney Melissa Williams can help.
When Is a Legal Modification Necessary?
Many people make the mistake of simply talking to their ex-spouse about the changes they need to make following a divorce. While you may both be on the same page, it is required that you file a motion with the court to demonstrate a need for change. We can help you gather the necessary evidence to substantiate that claim.
A few examples of reasons to seek a modification include:
- The other spouse/parent of your child has a drug or alcohol problem
- There has been a significant change in your income
- You or your ex-spouse has become extremely ill
- You or your spouse plans to relocate
- There has been a change in the possession of your child
- Your child has expressed a desire to live with you
