Divorce Modifications

Attorney for Divorce Modifications in Hays County, Travis County, Blanco County & the Surrounding Central Texas Areas

At The Law Office of Milena Christopher, we understand that life is ever-evolving. A provision in a divorce or custody arrangement that initially worked for both parties may no longer be applicable years, or even months, later. We can help modify your legal agreement and regain a fair standard of living in the process.

Call our firm today at (512) 858-8253 to schedule an appointment!

We begin all cases by listening to each client’s situations and devising a new arrangement based on the unique circumstances of the situation.

What Arrangements Can I Modify?

In Texas, you can request a post-divorce modification if there has been a material and substantial change in needs regarding:

  1. Spousal Support

Also known as spousal maintenance, spousal support is the continued financial responsibility one spouse has to the other. Since a change in circumstance can affect a party’s ability to pay this award, the court allows for modification requests. In order for the modification to be approved, one party must be able to illustrate that a substantial change has occurred that warrants modifying the current spousal maintenance plan.

  1. Child Support

Much like a spousal support modification, to obtain a child support modification, one party must be able to prove a substantial change in circumstance that warrants Modification. For example, if the receiving party must make new payments due to the increased medical needs of their child, they could petition for modification. On the other hand, if the paying party loses their job, they may no longer be able to afford the current child support payments and may petition for a reduction.

  1. Child Custody & Visitation

Terms regarding custody and visitation can be modified after a divorce decree has been submitted. To do so, one party must show how their new situation differs from when the arrangement was originally created. For instance, if one party must relocate for work, they might seek a modification to reflect this. The Law Office of Milena Christopher has handled many relocation cases successfully and can offer sound advice regarding what the law requires as material and substantial reasons to permit or deny relocation by one parent.
