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.
