Denton Child Order Modifications Attorney

Modifications | Magaña & Van Dyke

Denton County Child Order Modifications Lawyer Serving Denton

In Texas, the family law courts understand that a person's life can change significantly, which may affect their ability to adhere to the orders in their divorce, child custody, and/or child support case. As such, if a "material and substantial change of circumstances" has occurred, it may be possible to have the agreement modified to better reflect the individual's situation or to meet the child's needs.

To obtain a modification, you must submit a request to the court explaining the reason the change is needed and why it should be granted. You may also be required to attend a hearing to present your case in court. Both parts of the process require an in-depth understanding of family law and skill in developing compelling arguments. At Magaña & Van Dyke, our Denton attorneys have over 20 years of combined legal experience. We can help you every step of the way. We'll gain an understanding of your circumstances to develop a strategy for your specific needs and goals.

Reasons for a Modification

Because every person's situation is unique, the grounds for requesting a modification are complex. For instance, a visitation order may need to be modified because one parent moved out of state or because a parent has developed a dependency on drugs and/or alcohol that affects their ability to properly care for the child (or children). A child support order may need to be updated because one parent lost their job.

If you believe your situation warrants a modification of custody or support, speak with one of our attorneys. We'll thoroughly analyze your circumstances and discuss your legal options.

At Magaña & Van Dyke, our lawyers can work to change an agreement based on a broad range of factors, such as:

  • Income change: We work with both parties to match support payments to new income amounts.
  • Additional support for the child: We can work to have child support payments increased to fully meet the needs of children.
  • Moving to a new home: Often, clients need to relocate due to job transfers, to be closer to family, or for education-related issues.
  • Schedule changes: Visitation arrangements can be modified to accommodate life changes, such as new work hours or child activities.

Whatever your situation, we'll help seek a modification to fit your circumstances while protecting the best interests of your family.
