Seeking Post Judgment Modifications That Make Sense For Your Family
At Reed Law Group, P.C., we understand that what makes sense at the time of a divorce or resolution of a child custody or child support matter, may not make sense years down the road when circumstances have changed for you or your family. In cases like this, seeking modification may be the best way to ensure you and your family had the custody and support order that makes the most sense for your current situation, and the experienced attorneys at Reed Law Group, P.C. can help.
Motions For Change Of Custody, Parenting Time And Support
Have your circumstances changed in a way that makes your current child custody arrangement difficult or impossible to maintain? Is parenting time no longer in your children’s best interests. Is the current amount of child support or spousal support insufficient due to changes in you or your children’s financial circumstances? If so, then it’s important to know that in Michigan, it’s possible to modify an existing custody, parenting time or support order by filing a motion with the Court.
In addition to considering how extensive the change is to your circumstances is, the custodial environment and whether the child’s safety and well-being are at play, the courts will also consider how long the current agreement has been in place and each parent’s ability to love, care and provide for the child. The party presenting the motion for change of custody or support has a heavy burden of proof, and they must present clear, convincing evidence that supports their request for modification. People who are unfamiliar with the expectations of the court may struggle to meet this burden or accidentally make mistakes when filing that could hurt their case unknowingly.
