Orange County Child Support, Spousal Support, and Child Custody Modification Attorneys
Divorce agreements and orders are designed to establish not only the separation and disentanglement of the lives of the spouses, but also to govern their relationship in the future.
In the future, however, circumstances may change, requiring the agreement or Judgment to be modified to meet the changing needs or demands of the parties. Life is not static, and circumstances change. If the circumstances on which the terms of your divorce were predicated have changed, it may be time to change the terms of your divorce.

Orange County Spousal Support Modification Attorneys
Child Support | Child Custody | Alimony
The common elements of a divorce that require modification are:
• Child Support — You or your former spouse may have experienced, or may claim to have experienced, a job change or loss. The incomes of the parties may have changed, thus necessitating a review of the support amount. Ultimately, support may need to be increased or decreased, depending on the circumstances.
• Child Custody — A variety of circumstances may cause the need for modification of the child custody arrangements, to best suit the needs, safety, and well-being of the children involved.
• Spousal Support — You may be seeking termination of support because your former spouse has remarried or is cohabiting with a member of the opposite sex. Conversely, you may be seeking to extend or increase the support you receive, in light of knowledge that your ex-spouse has had an increase in his or her income.
