Financial court orders can be modified if you have experienced a substantial change in circumstances. For example, if you lost your job, we can apply for a reduction in the amount of child support or alimony you must pay. If your ex-spouse received a substantial increase in pay, we can seek to have their payments modified upward.

Custody and visitation court orders may be modified if it is in the best interest of your child or children to do so. In some cases the Office of Family Relations or a court-appointed attorney may need to get involved to make a recommendation to the court on behalf of your child regarding what changes may be in his or her best interest.

If one of your children reaches the age of majority, it is important to seek a modification of child support and have it recalculated for any remaining minor children. You cannot simply stop paying the amount allocated for the child who recently became an adult.

Move Away Issues - Relocation

If you are a custodial parent who wishes to move out of state with your child or children, it is extremely important to consult an attorney before you move or you may jeopardize your custodial rights.

To move away, the custodial parent must either gain the consent of the non-custodial parent, or prove to the court that the relocation serves a legitimate purpose, and won't harm the other parent's right to have an ongoing relationship with the child(ren).The opposing party then has an opportunity to argue that the move is not in the best interest of the child.

We assist parents who were formerly married as well as parents who were never married establish, enforce, and modify their parental rights. If you have any questions about modification of court orders, please contact an attorney at D'Amico, Griffin and Pettinicchi, LLC.
