Order Modification

Fayetteville Order Modification Lawyer

As your situation changes after a divorce, there are circumstances where child custody and child support can be modified.  There isn’t a limitation on which parent can seek to modify an order.  The first thing to determine is whether anything has changed with your situation that might enable order modification.  Two common scenarios involve (1) a change of circumstances (such as change in income, change in the child’s needs, etc) or (2) violation of court order.
