Making Changes To Support And Custody Agreements

When a couple is going through a divorce or child custody dispute, the agreement that they make reflects the couple's situation at that time. Whether the court issued a ruling regarding these issues or the parties came to an agreement on their own, it may be possible to revisit prior child custody, child support and spousal support awards in certain circumstances.

The experienced attorneys at Woodley & Dudley can help you determine if you may be eligible to make changes to the custody or support orders in your case. Whether you are seeking changes or looking to defeat a modification proposed by the other side, our skilled lawyers will examine your situation to learn more about exactly what we can do to help your family.

A Major Change In Circumstances

In order to take a second look, Texas law requires that there be significant changes that would permit a modification of the order. This means that something has happened that greatly impacts one of the parties, and could make it impossible for that person to meet the specific requirements previously handed down. These changes could include:

  • A change in a person's working situation (obtaining or losing a job)
  • A reduction in hours that leads to reduced income
  • A remarriage by one of the parties
  • A relocation by a custodial parent

We welcome the opportunity to talk to you about your specific situation. We will carefully examine what is currently happening to gain a better understanding of what we feel are the options that are available to you.
