Why Might a Court Order Be Modified?
To seek a change to a child support, child custody or spousal support order, the petitioning party must show that there has been a substantial change in circumstances. Some examples of valid reasons are:
- Switching jobs has led to a change in work hours and/or income
- The loss of a job, leading to lack of income
- A parent has a good faith reason for relocating and wants to take the children along
- Allegations of abuse, neglect, drug or alcohol use
- The receiver of alimony payments gets remarried or is living with a new partner
Proceedings to modify court orders can be even more contentious than the original divorce. Our Hamilton law firm is fully prepared to handle these complex issues and reach positive resolutions, including in situations that require litigation to protect our clients’ rights.
