POST-DIVORCE MODIFICATIONS WITH TEXAS LAWS

DALLAS DIVORCE LAWYERS

Post-divorce modification occurs when a former couple decides to make changes to their pre-existing court order. The court has jurisdiction over the cases even after the decree has been issued, and a formal, agreed modification order must be filed to when two parties want to change their order. Texas requires a significant change of circumstances before it even considers a modification. Legal action for post-divorce modifications usually falls into one of three categories, which include income and financial needs, child custody, and enforcement.

 

There are many reasons post-divorce modification would be considered for any of these topics. The following are all scenarios in which modification may be considered due to the child’s custody and financial support. In some cases the parent paying child support may lose his or her job, or switch to a significantly lower paying job. That parent is then entitled to ask for a reduction in child support payments. In cases where the noncustodial parent’s income increases, the custodial parent is entitled to ask for an increase in child support payments. Another circumstance is if a child has an increase in needs—if the child has greater medical expenses, the other parent may be required to chip in. Other reasons a parent may request modification in child support include relocation, drug use/violence in the home, or gross lack of supervision.

 

If either spouse does not live up to the obligation outlined in the divorce agreement, the conditions may be enforced by going to court. Other than child support, modifications may also be made with regards to child custody, child visitation, and spousal support agreements. There are many different ways to approach a divorce modification. Medication or collaborative law are both alternatives to litigation. In mediation, both parties reach an agreement with the help of a neutral third party. In collaborative family law, the parties agree at the beginning that they will work together to reach a decision about the issue at hand. The parties are represented by lawyers who help their clients reach agreement without the need for litigation.
