Post-Decree Modifications In Los Angeles
Does your child want to spend more time with you? Has your ex received a raise in pay? If circumstances have changed significantly since your spousal support, child support, custody or visitation order was issued, the court will consider a request for post-decree modification. At Stolar & Associates, A Professional Law Corporation, I represent individuals before, during and after divorce. If you need help pursuing a post-decree modification to reflect your new circumstances, you can talk to me, attorney Steven Stolar.
Will Modifying A Custody Or Support Order Affect Your Child?
I have dedicated my law firm to representing parents in Southern California courts for 35 years. As your attorney, I will help you consider all your legal options, including a variety of parenting plans. I will discuss how a change will affect your relationship with your child and how it will affect your financial security.
After you have decided how to proceed, I will frame an argument to present your position in the strongest way. If you feel your child is at risk if he or she returns to the other parent’s home, I will request that the court take immediate action while the matter is investigated.
Reasons A Court May Grant A Post-Decree Modification
The court may grant an order for post-decree modification for a variety of reasons:
- There has been a significant change in income (yours or your ex’s).
- Your child’s needs have changed due to medical expenses, a special class, or an activity.
- Your child has grown to a stage where a change in custody will benefit the child.
- The custodial parent is relocating and a change will allow the child to remain.
- The custodial parent is moving, a move-away order has been issued allowing the parent to take the child out of state, and a different custody and visitation arrangement is needed.
- A child’s school hours, sports or other activities require a change in the parenting plan.
