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
Impending child relocation
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.
