Denver Court Order Modification Lawyers

Family Lawyer in Denver

Searching for a lawyer for a court order modification in Denver? As events change in the lives of family members, it may be necessary to modify existing court orders in order to better accommodate the needs of divorced parents, children, and other family members.

Contact Jones Law Firm, PC today to see how our court order modification lawyers can help you pursue a modification.

Common provisions in court orders that may be modified include:

Child support Child custody Parenting time and visitation Alimony

The court will consider modifying a divorce decree or a child custody order for a variety of circumstances such as the following:

Job loss or change in income

Health issues

Impending child relocation

Financial changes

Domestic violence or child abuse

Decrease in value of property scheduled for sale as part of the division of marital assets

When both parents are on agreeable terms, it may be tempting to informally modify a court order in order to bypass any legal proceedings. You might think that it is easier to make a verbal agreement with your former spouse to change child support, for example. However, it is highly advised that all changes be made through a court-ordered modification process. If, for example, you and your former spouse informally agree to a monetary decrease in child support, whether temporary or long-term, the court may find this parent to be violating court orders regarding financial support.

Do you need a Denver family law firm?

There are other orders that can be modified after divorce, but due to their challenging nature, they can be properly addressed with the assistance of a family law attorney. A Denver family attorney at Jones Law Firm, PC can assist you with making an informed decision on properly modifying any aspect of a court order while ensuring that the wellbeing of you and your children are protected.
