Modifications: Changing Your Divorce Order
A court order cannot predict the future. After a significant change in circumstances, your child support, custody arrangement or visitation schedule may need to be changed.
Fortunately, Virginia family courts allow a modification in court-ordered child support and custody arrangements when there has been a significant change in circumstances. A change in circumstances could include relocating for a job, moving to be near family, or having a significant medical condition arise that prevents one parent from physically or financially supporting a child.
If you have experienced a significant change in circumstances and your current child support or custody arrangementis no longer appropriate, it is important to contact an attorney as soon as possible. Simply failing to pay child support or not following the custody arrangement can lead to significant legal and financial consequences.
