Fort Worth Divorce and Custody Modification Attorney
Disputes often arise relating to divorce decrees. Consequently, divorce and custody modifications occur frequently. Usually, something changes in the support-paying parent’s life, such as losing a job and not being able to pay the ordered payment. One side may be having problems with addiction or legal problems, or be suspected of abuse. Sometimes the needs of a child changes as he or she grows and develops.
When these situations occur, it is necessary to file for a modification to the original court order. Modifications must not be undertaken without court approval. Informal agreements between ex-spouses often break down. Making the change publicly is the best way to protect both parties from misunderstandings and reneging.
Experienced Lawyer For Divorce Modifications In Fort Worth
Modifications are a lawsuit that you file for major changes in divorce decrees. They are distinct from clarifications, which are merely motions asking for an incorrect fact to be fixed.
At the Law Office of V. Wayne Ward, I file motions for every kind of court order modification:
It is wise to file a petition for modification as soon as conditions prompt, because few judges will order back payment before the date of the petition filing.
Sometimes modifications lead to noncompliance. When this occurs, I can assist you in requesting enforcement by the court.
