Child Support Modifications

In Texas, child support modifications are governed by state laws that allow for adjustments to child support orders under certain circumstances. When a parent experiences a significant change in circumstances, such as a change in income, job loss, or changes in the child’s needs, they may petition the court for a modification of the existing child support order. Texas law recognizes that financial circumstances can change over time and aims to ensure that child support orders remain fair and appropriate.

However, it’s important to note that modifications are not automatic and must be approved by the court. The court will consider factors such as your child’s needs, both you and your co-parent’s financial resources, and any other relevant circumstances before deciding whether to grant a modification. Our skilled Killeen modification lawyers can help you navigate the child support modification process effectively, no matter if you are the paying or receiving parent, and ensure that your rights and best interests are protected.

Spousal Maintenance Modifications

Similarly, it is also possible for either the paying or receiving former spouse to seek spousal maintenance modifications in the event that they experience a substantial change in circumstance (for example, if their income, employment status, health, or marital status has changed). Just as with child support modifications, these changes are not automatic and must be approved by the court. The party seeking the modification bears the burden of proving that a change in circumstance justifies it.

If you decide to pursue modifications to your spousal maintenance order, you bear the burden of proving that a change in circumstance justifies it. Our experienced Killeen modification lawyers will advocate for your desired changes and put you in the best possible position for success. The court will consider factors such as your original agreement or court order, the financial resources of both you and your ex, and any other relevant circumstances before deciding whether to grant a modification.

Child Custody Modifications

Finally, it is also possible to get custody orders modified to ensure that they reflect the best interests of the child. If either parent experienced a change in circumstance following the initial order – such as a change in employment, relocation, or living situation – or if the current custody arrangement is no longer in the child’s best interests – due to such factors as parental unfitness, neglect, or abuse.

Once again, if you are the parent seeking the custody modification, you bear the burden of proving that a modification is warranted. Our Killeen modification lawyers will guide you through the steps of petitioning for a modification effectively and present the most compelling evidence that the current custody arrangement is no longer satisfactory. In cases of neglect or abuse, it is especially necessary that you contact our office urgently.
