Making Changes To Existing Court Orders

An important thing to remember about child support or child custody orders is that they do not have to be permanent. Children and circumstances change over the years, and orders pertaining to children may need to be modified to meet the children’s new needs. With decades of legal experience, our attorneys at Oliver Leffler Law can provide you with the guidance you need if you think you and your children need to modify your parenting plan, custody agreement and/or child support amount.

If you have questions about what it takes to modify child custody or child support orders in Howard County, Carroll County, Anne Arundel County or elsewhere in Maryland, contact us online or call attorneys Margaret Oliver and Lauren Leffler at 410-740-1180 to schedule a consultation.

Modifying Your Divorce Is Difficult. Get The Right Legal Advice First.

While Maryland law allows for modifications, it is necessary to prove that there has been a material change in circumstances. Margaret and Lauren can help you gather the right evidence and prepare effective arguments to achieve your goal. Commonly, there may be grounds for a modification if you and/or your ex-spouse:

  • Received a raise or lost a job
  • Suffers from a disability or illness or is facing a medical emergency
  • Wants to move out of state or more than 40 miles away
  • Is living with a new partner or spouse
  • Is getting remarried
  • Share a child who needs special care

As your attorneys, Margaret and Lauren will sit down with you, take the time to learn all the details of your situation and prepare a strategy to assist you with the modification. As litigators and mediators, they can effectively represent you in any situation that gives you the best chance of coming to a successful resolution.
