Child Support Modification Consultation In Houston Texas
Usually in order to have a basis for a court to order a modification, there must be a material change in circumstances. Changes in circumstances may include, but are not limited to a job loss by one party, an increase in income for one party, a change in job location, unexpected health, or disability problems, etc.
If you need a modification, Daniel Ogbeide Law will help you obtain the desired changes through Mediation or Collaborative Representation. When parties are willing to work together, a modification may be achieved in a relatively short period of time and is much less costly than litigation.
Life often changes unexpectedly sometimes. This is especially true after a divorce. You or your spouse may obtain a new job or get laid off. As circumstances change substantially, you have the right to petition the court for a modification of family law orders. For a variety of reasons, a person might ask to modify an order previously entered by a family law judge. Those modification actions can ask for a modification of any of the following types of orders:
- downward modifications of maintenance / alimony.
- upward or downward modification of child support.
- modifications of a parenting plan or residential schedule.
- modifications of a property disposition in a divorce action.
Additionally, the trial court may relieve a party from a final judgment, order, or proceeding for mistake, inadvertence, surprise, excusable neglect, or irregularity in obtaining the judgment or order.
Petitioning the court for modification of an order can be a complicated process.
