You may want to ask the court to change a previous court judgment or prior order, such as child support or custody, due to a change in your life circumstances. In that case, you will need to file a motion with the court called a Motion to Modify. To be successful, you must be able to show that there has been a “substantial change in circumstances,” since the last court order.
Changes in circumstances that may allow you to file a Motion to Modify include:
- A substantial change in income for either party, which can impact child or spousal support.
- A change in a parent’s schedule or where a parent lives, which may require a change in visitation.
- A change in the ability of one parent to be fully involved in the life of the child, which may require a change in a child custody arrangement.
