Grounds for an Order Modification
When parenting plans are created, they are created in response to a parent's
existing situation. If a substantial change occurs in one parent's
life or circumstances, they might have grounds to request a modification
to the child custody or
child support agreement.
There are numerous things that can cause the need for modification, including:
- Loss of job
- Promotion or substantial raise in salary
- Remarriage or cohabitation
- Severe illness
Conversely, if a modification might be requested from the other spouse
if they believe a significant change in their ex's circumstances is
endangering the child. If you have a current child custody or support
arrangement and want to make sure your circumstances are not grounds for
a modification against you, we encourage you to contact our Orlando divorce
