When ruling on a divorce or family court case, the judge will decide upon
an agreement that they determine best suits both parties and their situations.
It is not uncommon, however, for circumstances to change drastically within
a few months or even years later, making the original judgment unsuitable
for the current situation. In such cases, the impacted party can seek a
modification on the court's prior orders.
If your circumstances have changed and you would like to have your court
orders modified, do not wait to speak with a skilled family attorney as

a request for modification. If you are unsure whether your situation qualifies
