Court Order Modifications in Dallas
Modifying Family Law Orders
Certain court orders established during divorce and family law cases, especially those that relate to matters involving children, can be modified. Any party, including parents, is eligible to pursue a modification by filing an action with the court in the jurisdiction in which the order was granted. Whether changes to orders are sought on the basis of new changes in financial circumstances, evolving needs or desires of the parents, or others, a formal process must be followed.
At the Mathur Law Offices, P.C., our
Dallas family law attorneys have helped numerous clients through the modification process. Using our extensive experience and insight into local Texas family law court systems, we have been able to continuously represent our clients, protect their rights, and help them achieve their objectives. The most common modifications include:
Child Support - In such a hostile economic climate, parents often find themselves in fragile financial situations. Injuries, illnesses, and job loss can negatively impact their ability to meet the financial demands of their original
child support orders. Additionally, growing demands of a child, especially when unforeseen medical or emergency situations occur, may make it necessary for child support orders to be amended. Whether you are the parent who is paying or receiving child support, our firm is here to help you through the process.
Child Custody - As Texas always focuses on the best interests of the child, modifications to
child custody orders are common. Circumstances that may initiate changes to these orders include a parent's unwillingness to take care of a child, a parent's relocation, drug abuse, criminal convictions, and others. Given the importance of these matters, working with an experienced attorney is crucial.
Visitation Rights - Changes in a parent's life, including financial and personal circumstances, can also be sufficient cause for modifications to
child visitation rights. Either parent can request these modifications, including amendments that allow for less contact or increased visitation rights.
Spousal Support - Changes to
spousal support can be modified or, depending on the circumstances, terminated. When a spouse finds gainful employment, re-marries, or has changes to their financial situation, these actions can be pursued.
