Modification of Court Orders
There is an old saying that family law orders are written in sand. If you stick around a while, you will find out the meaning behind the saying is because families change; more specifically, if there is a material and substantial change in the circumstances of either parent or the child and the requested change is proven to be in the best interest of the child, then a person is entitled to a modification of their prior court order.
One can easily see why family law orders have to be modifiable. Children grow up, parents get re-married, change jobs, re-locate (if the are allowed), parents lose jobs, children develop issues over the years as they begin to mature - there are a slew of things that can occur that may constitute a material and substantial change in circumstances of the parties.
