Phoenix Modification Attorney
Circumstances Change — We Can Help! Also Serving Scottsdale.
After a divorce, it's common for circumstances to change to the extent that you would need to modify your existing agreement. With a capable legal advocate on your side, you can trust that your best interests will be strongly represented and that all legal details will be effectively handled.
What Types of Orders Can Be Modified?
If certain conditions are met and the court approves of your modification action, it is possible to modify your divorce agreement. This generally includes the terms of child support, spousal support, and child custody orders.
Speak to our attorney about modifying your existing orders regarding:
- Spousal support: The person paying alimony may be earning more or less than they were when the original order was agreed to, or one of the parties may have remarried. These circumstances can warrant the need for a modification.
- Child support: School and daycare costs, medical bills, and expenses for extracurricular activities can change as children grow. These situations and changes in either parent’s ability to provide support may lead to a modification.
- Child custody and visitation: Parents who move or work more after an initial custody order is reached, or conversely, parents who wish to spend more time with their children, may request a modification.

You can trust us to provide you with the high-quality representation you deserve.
When Can an Order Be Modified?
In order to modify an order such as child support, child custody/visitation, or spousal support, you must prove to the court that a substantial change took place and that the change in question requires a modification to be made to accommodate your circumstances.
The following are usually considered significant enough life changes to merit a modification:
- Income change
- Child's needs increase
- Employment change (such as being fired)
The court will evaluate your case and determine whether the modification can be granted.
