How to Modify a Court Order
Modifying a court order is by no means a simple process. From the beginning, the court will not want to modify any sort of order, as it means more work and going back on what it once determined was the best decision. You will need to convince the court – and your ex-spouse if you want to keep things straightforward – that modification is both beneficial and necessary. If either of those stipulations are not met, the modification is likely to be rejected.
A modification will be necessary if you have undergone a significant life event that calls for it, such as:
- Debilitating injury or illness
- Relocation to keep employment
- Unexpected job loss
If you believe you have experienced a life event that dramatically changed your living situation or day-to-day livelihood, call (817) 435-4970 to speak with our Fort Worth divorce attorneys. We can analyze your case and let you know with better accuracy whether or not your proposed modifications will stand a chance in court.
