Life Goes on After a Divorce

A divorce, when finalized, contains orders for financial support and custody that extend indefinitely. They are based on your situation and your ex-spouse's situation at the time of the divorce, which may significantly change as time passes. When you need changes to family law-related court orders, the Fairfax post-judgment modification attorneys at Becker, Kellogg & Berry, P.C., will guide you through modifications of custody, child support, spousal support and related court orders.

Experienced Guidance for Motions to Modify Court Orders

Our law firm can help you with modifications of the following:

  • Child support: Child support determinations are based on a series of factors that account for the financial position of each parent. If you or your spouse has lost a job, received a raise or had another financial change that creates a "material change of circumstances," you may be able to seek a modification of your order.
  • Child custody: Parents may seek to modify custody for many reasons. They may believe abuse or endangerment is occurring, their children may want to live with the other parent, or some other change in circumstances may warrant a motion for modification.
  • Visitation: You may need to request visitation modification for a variety of reasons.
  • Relocation: Parents who plan to move out of state or to a distant part of Virginia must give notice so that the noncustodial parent can object. Usually such a move will require an adjustment in the parenting schedule as to the specific times the children will be with each parent.
  • Spousal support: Spousal support is based both on the paying spouse's ability to pay and the recipient spouse's need for support. If the paying spouse's financial circumstances undergo a significant change or if the recipient spouse achieves independence, support can sometimes be terminated.

Usually, property settlements cannot be modified once a final order has been issued.
