Your personal life is one that constantly changes. Different relationships and different circumstances can quickly evolve for better and for worse. In these situations, individuals who are affected by certain family law orders can petition for modifications that better fit their unique circumstances.
Whether it is divorce, child custody, child support or any other related family law matter, courts may issue orders that require individuals to meet certain requirements. These requirements may include making payments or upholding certain obligations. When a change in circumstances makes it so that you are unable to meet these requirements, or when a change in circumstances significantly changes your situation, you can ask the court to modify an order.
At Atkins & Markoff, our Oklahoma family lawyers have assisted numerous individuals and families who were seeking modifications. Examples of the cases we can handle include:
Modifications to child custody, child support, or visitation rights
Spousal support modifications
Changes in income or employment and other hardships
Relocation and changes in location
Modifications of restraining orders
The most common modifications made are those relating to children. Parents may agree to amend child custody orders from sole to joint custody or from joint to sole custody. Changes in circumstances and the changing needs of children and families may also result in the need for modifications to child support or visitation orders. You can learn more about post-decree modifications and child custody orders in our video center.
Regardless of the case, our Oklahoma divorce lawyers make it a point to work personally with clients so that we have a clear understanding of their situation, needs, and goals. We then apply decades of legal experience to help our clients achieve their objectives.
