When Will the Court Grant a Modification?
Courts will not grant modifications arbitrarily – they will look to see that a substantial change in circumstances necessitates changing your existing agreement. The court will review several factors before approving or denying your request for modification.
Common reasons for requesting a divorce order modification include:
- Substantial increase or decrease in income, including job loss
- Long-term illness
- A former spouse remarries
- Changes in a child’s needs
- Evidence of physical or emotional abuse (safety concerns)
- Alcohol or drug dependency
Regardless of your specific situation, attorney Cho will work hard to sway the court and help you get the results you need.
