Post-Divorce Modifications for Houston Families
The terms of divorce are legally binding, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be changed. A family’s circumstances can change over time, and terms that made sense years ago may no longer be best. If you need to change a court order or otherwise modify your divorce after it’s been settled, the family law team at Wilfried P. Schmitz & Associates, P.C. can help.
Modifying a Court Order
In general, property division cannot be modified after the divorce is settled. However, child custody and support, as well as spousal support, can be changed to reflect changing circumstances. There are many reasons this may be necessary.
For example, one party may have recently lost their job or changed careers, leading to a difference in income that may affect support payments. Or, a custody arrangement that made sense for a toddler may not be practical for a school-aged child.
The circumstances leading to a post-divorce modification are as varied as the families that need them – which is why having an attorney experienced in this type of family law is so important.
