Modifications Attorney in San Diego

Changing the Terms of Your Divorce, Spousal Support, or Child Custody Agreement

Our firm has a motto: "When life changes, we are here to help." That is true in any family law case, but it is particularly true for post-judgment modifications. Sometimes the terms you set during your divorce do not match your current situation, and new terms have to be drafted. When that happens, call our attorneys to speed up and smooth out the process for you.

Modification orders can apply to a number of family law situations, including:

If your circumstances have changed, you may need to alter your court orders (as listed above). For example, if you have lost a job or if your child's needs have changed. Altering the court orders quickly may be vital.

Until the order has been changed though the court, you must continue honoring the current order. Having a lawyer handle your modification request will aide you in obtaining your desired result. Our decades of collective experience can help eliminate the delays and uncertainty of filing a court motion.

The Grounds for Modification

Grounds for a modification encompass any change that affects your financial situation. When it comes to children, grounds for modification include anything that affects the well-being of your child. Our attorneys (who are skilled in discovery and investigation) can help present the facts of your situation in order to strengthen your modification request.

Grounds for a modification can include:
  • Increase or decrease in income
  • Loss of a job for one parent
  • Increase in child care costs
  • Parent's lifestyle has become detrimental to child
  • One spouse has moved in with a significant other

Whether you have primary custody and are seeking to limit visitation rights, or your financial situation has changed and you want to lower your spousal support payments, modifications can help make the law address your specific needs.
