Modifying Court Orders in Houston
When a divorce is finalized, its terms become legally binding. In order to adjust your custody, child support, or other divorce terms, you will need to petition to change the standing court order. The family law offices of Wilfried P. Schmitz & Associates, P.C. can help you with this and other family law issues you may face.
Sometimes life circumstances change after divorce, and arrangements that once worked for your family are no
longer relevant. If you need to modify a court order for custody, visitation or child support, you will need to follow the appropriate procedure. Otherwise, if you act without court approval, you could put yourself at risk of legal action.
Changing a court order requires paperwork to be filed with the county clerk, and a court or mediation hearing. You should be sure to consult with a family law attorney prior to making any modifications to ensure that all processes are followed correctly.
