Dallas Modifications of Court Orders Lawyers

Looking Out for Your Family’s Changing Needs

Parents have an obligation to care for and provide financial support for their children. Whether parents never marry or decide to divorce, both the custodial and non-custodial parent are required to provide financial support for their children. However, changing life circumstances may require a change in a court order. At Capetillo Law PLLC, our Dallas modifications of court orders attorneys can help you request a modification from the court.

Call (214) 506-0091 to learn if you have a basis for requesting a modification of a court order.

Grounds for Requesting a Modification

The most common modifications requested are changes to child support and child custody orders. The court allows you to request a child support order review every three years, and either parent can request a modification to an existing court order at any time. You must demonstrate a change in circumstances and that the modification is in the best interests of the child.

Common reasons for requesting a modification include:

  • A loss of employment
  • An increase or decrease in income
  • Change in marital status
  • Job relocation
  • Medical conditions
  • Child abuse or neglect

The courts consider a variety of factors in determining whether a requested modification is appropriate and in the best interests of the child. When a child custody modification is requested, the court will consider the child’s needs and best interests. In addition, the wishes of the child are considered when the child is older than 12 years of age.
