Modification

Representation That Continues Even After A Court Issues An Order

As your child grows, your family's needs are going to change and family court orders may no longer be adequate or practical. Even participation in a sport could make a visitation schedule difficult to follow. Child custody and support agreements are based on the circumstances at the time, and they may need to be altered or amended.

Has There Been A Material Change In Your Life?

Orders issued by a family court judge in Georgia are legally enforceable. This does not mean that they are set in stone. A parent must show that there has been a material change in circumstances and that amending the order is in the best interests of the child. There are some limited exceptions to this rule, which is only one more reason why you should have a knowledgeable attorney to help guide you through the process.

A material change in circumstances could include:

  • A parent who wishes to relocate to another state
  • A significant increase or decrease in a parent's income
  • A request for a change in custody made by a child 14 years or older
  • Military service or deployment
