Modifying Court Orders in Texas
Divorce, like marriage, is a legal process – and the terms of a divorce are legally binding. This means that things like child support and custody are determined and enforced through court orders, and making changes to these arrangements while staying on the right side of the law requires changing the court orders.
If you need legal advice about making post-divorce modifications or wish to petition to modify a court order in Galveston and surrounding areas, Wilfried P. Schmitz & Associates, P.C. can help.
A divorce decree or court order can be modified after the fact, according to the Texas Family Code. Common modifications include:
In general, property division arrangements are not eligible to be modified. However, because custody and support arrangements made at one point in a child’s life may not continue to be relevant later on, one or more changes may be required after a divorce – and an experienced family law attorney can help you petition for changes and ensure your interests are protected.
