Beaumont Modification Attorney

Modifying Your Divorce Agreement

It is not uncommon for parties within a divorce agreement to seek modifications or changes to the agreement. As time progresses, you or your partner may remarry, begin a new relationship, or start a new family. Such changes may require you to revisit the court and when you do, you need to bring legal counsel with you protect your interest.

  • At Shelander Law Offices, our Beaumont family law attorneys can provide you with legal representation in modification cases involving:
  • Child support
  • Visitation and custody
  • Spousal support
  • Changes in income
  • Move-away agreements

Changes to Child Support

Child support may be modified by the court at any given time. While the primary reason for this modification is often tied to a change in income of one parent, it can also be triggered by a change in the child’s residence or if the child decides to live primarily with the other parent.

If your child has specialized needs that require medical care or therapy, such expenses may be used as a catalyst to modify your agreement as well.

Child Custody Modifications

One of the most common modification cases we see are changes to a custody agreement. These cases can be complex and emotionally draining if you do not have an experienced legal team behind you.

  • Grounds for modifying a custody agreement include:
  • Inability to provide a stable environment
  • Signs of mental illness or excessive drug use
  • Evidence of physical or sexual abuse or neglect

You may also request to relocate your children with a move-away request, yet you must first obtain the court’s permission for this modification.
