MOTIONS TO MODIFY OR ESTABLISH COURT ORDERS
You can only file a motion to modify an order or judgment for parental rights or divorce if there is a “substantial change in circumstances” that supports your claim.
Several factors qualify as a substantial change in circumstances since the court order, including:
- A change in financial circumstances
- Parents’ physical and mental health
- Their relation with one another
- Anything that disrupts the current custody or parenting plan
One or both parents may request modifications of the parenting agreement. They must file papers with the court asking for a change (“modification”) of the custody and visitation order, and present grounds for modification.
You must also fill forms and prepare a parenting plan for the new custody and visitation arrangement. That’s where we come in.
