California Family Law
Modification of Existing Orders
After a reasonable amount of time, or if a change in circumstances since the last order can be demonstrated, either party may want to consider filing a motion to modify a prior court order concerning custody, visitation, child support, or spousal support.
For example, you may want to consider filing a motion to modify a court order to:
- raise or lower child support or terminate a support order
- change the residence of a child
- increase or decrease the time a child spends with each parent
If you and the other parent agree you may be able to avoid a court hearing if both parties sign an agreement or stipulation. If you do not agree with the other parent, you will need to file a motion and appear at court.
Kalfin Law is happy to assist you in these types of post-judgment modification proceedings, whether you are the moving party or the responding party.
