Modifications of Court Orders in Rancho Cucamonga
Do You Need a Court Order Modified?
After the court has ordered certain child support payments, visitation rights, spousal support or other matter related to a divorce, you are required to adhere to the order. If you fail to adhere to the ordered payments, you can face legal repercussions, including contempt of court, and legal efforts to collect payments you failed to make. There are some cases in which circumstances change, such as a change in employment, the need to relocate, a remarriage, or changed circumstances in a child's life. These changes could include educational needs, medical needs or other changing circumstances. Any such situation requires a modification be filed with the court to ensure that it is addressed. These modifications of court orders must be carefully drafted and presented to the court, as the decision on the changes will be based upon the evidence presented supporting the request.
