Even after a couple has settled on a divorce agreement, the circumstances of their lives can often change in the years to follow. These changes might make certain terms of divorce inadequate, or – as it more commonly happens – too demanding. When this happens, it is appropriate to seek a modification. Modifications can amend custody and visitation, child support and alimony agreements. Georgia courts do not take modifications lightly and grounds for these changes need to be properly filed and presented for a judge to seriously consider them.
At the practice of Faucette Law Firm LLC, our team understands family legal concerns and how critical modifications can be and how urgently they need to be honored in order to make a positive change in the lives of families.
If you believe your or your family’s circumstances call for a modification, then contact us to speak to a family law attorney in Atlanta and Douglasville today.
Grounds For A Legitimate Modification
Modifications demand a reconsideration of terms the court has already made or approved. For the court to update or alter an order, especially when the interests of children are concerned, the grounds for a modification must both be well-founded and soberly reported to a judge. Common grounds for a modification include:
- Dramatic change in income
- Child’s enrollment in college
- Any debilitating health changes to ex-spouse or child
- Any criminal charges of either parent
Modifications are necessary for many individuals and families to continue to ensure the best possible future for all involved. The courts understand that circumstances change, but only with emphatic counsel can an individual approach a modification with confidence.
