The family law cases, the most common court orders you will see are child custody agreements, child support orders and alimony payments.

Parents move away – whether for work or other opportunities – which can put a strain on a child custody arrangement. Parental relocations may mean difficulty seeing a child as planned or difficulty returning a child at a specific time each week. What once worked for the family is no longer feasible, which means a modification request is necessary.
Substantial changes to an individual’s financial situation – whether an increase in income or a loss of income — can lead to a court order modification request. While job loss can lead to the reduction or termination of a court order, an increase in income may cause the recipient of payments to ask to have the obligation amount increased.
