Modification of Prior Orders

Modifications of Prior Orders

You may need a modification for many reasons after a divorce or final court order. If you are having difficulties due to the terms of you divorce decree or final order, Stinson Moyle, PLLC may be able to help.

Divorce decrees and court orders regarding conservatorship, possession, and/orĀ child support are rendered on the facts that existed at the time of divorce or final order. Under certain changed circumstances--called a material and substantial change--conservatorship, possession and/or child support orders can be modified to apply to your current situation, provided that such a modification is in the best interest of the child. There are many examples of what situations may constitute a material and substantial change or that may no longer be in the best interest of the child.

Possible Reasons to Request a Modification

  • You want to move out of the geographic area where your divorce or final order was finalized
