Modifications To Custody, Parenting Time And Support Awards
To ensure that families have stability, courts are reluctant to modify agreements on a regular basis or for slight changes in the family’s situation. However, there are a number of reasons why a court will modify court orders regarding parental responsibility, time sharing, child support or alimony, including significant changes in:
- The income of one or both former spouses
- Schooling or extracurricular activities, which make parenting plans unworkable
- A child’s expenses, including private school tuition, health care costs, camp costs or fees for extracurricular activities
- A parent’s ability to care for the children
