About Modifying Family Law Orders
In California, there are laws in place that allow for the modification of family law orders to account for significant changes that have occurred since the decree was established.
Aspects of a family law order that can be modified include:
It is essential to realize that a court order cannot be modified simply because an individual feels that the first one was unjust. Instead, the party filing a petition for modification must be able to prove that there has been a significant change in circumstances.
You may be eligible for a modification if there is a substantial change in your:
- Income level
- Employment status
- Medical condition
- Relationship status
- Criminal record
- Child’s preference
- Child’s needs
If you find that your court order needs to be revisited and you think you qualify for a post-judgment modification, our family law attorneys can work to help you gather the evidence to prove your change in circumstances. Alternatively, if you would like to prevent a modification from occurring, we can help you fight against it.
