Houston Modification of Court Order Attorneys

Dedicated & Tireless Legal Representation

The courts understand the ever-changing nature of your life, which is why it is not uncommon for many divorced couples to eventually modify existing court orders. Despite the intimidating nature of attempting to modify what was once set into motion by law, we at Slate & Associates, Attorneys at Law are willing to do whatever it takes on your behalf. Our skilled Houston modification of court order lawyers will help you ensure your voice is heard. Modifying a court order may be the only answer to meet your family’s needs.

The following are circumstances under which the courts may approve modifying an order, including:

  • Income – A modification may be necessary if either party undergoes a significant increase or decrease in income, including becoming unemployed.
  • Children – Above all else, the courts are concerned about your child’s best interests. A modification can be granted if the current custody or support order is not in your child’s favor.
  • Health – If either party is unable to uphold or maintain their end of the order due to a medical condition, this must be addressed.
  • Remarriage, relocation, or other natural life changes – As imagined, these and other material or substantial changes will strongly require a modification.

To successfully obtain a modification, your legal team will need to prove that altering the set terms does not solely satisfy one’s person’s preferences. Instead, it will require evidence of why these changes are not only better, but they are necessary.
