Final Judgment/Prior Order Modification in Divorce, Family Law, and Custody
Sometimes, it is necessary to ask a court to change an order in a divorce proceeding. The court may have already issued a final judgment, or it may be a preliminary order that needs modification. Whatever the circumstances, the request must be brought to the court thoughtfully. You must assert the correct legal grounds and take the right steps procedurally.

- Child support modification, including unique situations of a child in high school after 18 or an adult disabled child, changes in income or custody
- Alimony based on a change in circumstances or qualifying event for termination
