Do You Need a Modification?

For both divorced and unmarried couples, court-approved agreements that govern child custody and child or spousal support are carefully considered before being approved by a judge.

Grounds for a Modification

When custody and support agreements are approved or decreed by a judge, it is because he or she has carefully weighed a family's situation. To request a change to those agreements requires strong, factual evidence that they no longer best suit your circumstances.

Common grounds for a modification include:

  • Remarrying of one party
  • Relocation of one parent
  • Dramatic change in one party's financial situation
  • Dramatic change in the health of one party or child
  • Permanent change in one parent's schedule
  • Drug, alcohol, or domestic violence issues

If you believe that your situation qualifies for a modification, then we urge you to contact our firm today. Our Birmingham family lawyers are well-versed in preparing petitions and making sure that the circumstances of our clients are clearly and convincingly put forth to the judge.
