It is a given that over time families change, as do their needs. Over time, a family law judgment may no longer serve the needs of a family. When this is the case, prior court orders can be modified, assuming a material change in circumstances occurs. This applies to custody and support — spousal and child.

In the case of custody, many factors affect the ability to modify your existing order. It is necessary to demonstrate that the current situation concretely affects the child in a negative way and that a change would materially raise the child's well-being. This applies, for examples, in the case of a relocation, problems in school or changes in the parent's income, just to name a few.
