Modification of Custody/Visitation/Support
We all know that life changes over time. This is especially true when a married couple get a divorce and they start to head in new directions. After a divorce, a husband or wife may decide to seek a new job, move to a new location, go back to school to improve their job opportunities, or find a new spouse.
What is the Standard for a Modification
As a general rule, courts are reluctant to make changes to an existing court order, because that might give people an incentive to come rushing to court every time any minor change occurred in their circumstances.
As such, people seeking a post decree modification must provide evidence that surpasses a specific threshold to obtain the modification of a custody, visitation, or support order.
