It's natural for a divorced couple's circumstances to change after their
divorce has been finalized. Depending on the change in circumstances, it may be
necessary for one or both parties to change or modify a court order. Judges
understand that people's circumstances change, and are usually willing
to modify an order as long it does not compromise the best interest of
any children and the changes in circumstances are "significant."
For example, seeking a modification of a child support order after quitting
your job is not likely to going to happen. However, if you show that you've
been laid off and have been diligently looking for a new job but just
haven't had any luck, the judge is more likely to lower your child
