In the event of a change in circumstance, modifications may be necessary in order to update the agreements made in an existing court order, such as child support or parenting plans. A motion or petition to the court is typically made when a non-custodial parent is seeking to modify the terms of child support or custody that were previously agreed upon. In some cases, modification may also be necessary to correct an error in a ruling or agreement. Modifications may be filed as often as needed if events or circumstances arise that require them, so allow us to handle the hassle and contact our law firm today!
Agreement Modification May Be in Your Best Interest
