Orders addressing custody, child support and alimony are based on the parties’ objectives and the circumstances that exist when the decision is finalized. When a substantial change occurs, however, the terms in those orders might no longer be appropriate or fair. Regardless of how just a revision seems, prior family law litigants are not permitted to make changes on their own. At David Self Family Law and Mediation in Huntersville, I am an experienced North Carolina attorney who represents clients seeking to change a family order as well as parties opposing revisions. From the outset, I’ll explain the standards courts use and guide you through the steps necessary to secure a fair post-judgment modification.
My family law background and the personal attention I provide to each client give divorced spouses the chance to obtain an appropriate modification when a job opportunity, medical condition, financial change or some other important situation arises. I assist parties seeking and defending against revisions in matters relating to:
To adjust an order, I can file a Motion to Modify and include all of the relevant supporting information. Whether you’re seeking or opposing a modification, a submission could include reports from family counselors or other experts discussing the potential impact on your child or detailing a change in one party’s financial fortunes.
