Do You Need To Change An Existing Order?
A divorce agreement or judge’s findings will include orders concerning child support, child custody, visitation, spousal support and property division. These orders are not necessarily final, however. When a significant change in circumstances occurs, you can seek to modify a family law order. At Koiles Pratt Family Law Group, we regularly go to court on behalf of clients who want to modify existing child support, visitation and spousal support orders. We also represent people who want to prevent modifications or obtain modifications on different terms.

Child Support Modifications
Common reasons for seeking a modification of a child support order include a significant change in the income of one of the parents and a change in a child’s educational or health care needs.
Our firm also has experience in cases involving parents who are self-employed or who attempt to hide income to avoid payment of child support. When there is a support order and the other parent is not abiding by it, our firm can seek to enforce the order through a contempt petition.
Changing Child Custody And Visitation Orders
Our attorneys often represent clients who wish to change child custody and visitation orders. In some cases, we can negotiate workable solutions that accommodate the needs of both parents. If necessary, we will go to court to protect your rights.
