Family Law Modifications

Speak with a Reno Family Lawyer: (775) 284-8888

Divorce and other family law proceedings – including those involving child custody, alimony, and other issues – typically result in a court order that establishes the obligations and responsibilities of the parties involved. These orders may outline your responsibility to provide payments to an ex-spouse for spousal support or child support, or detail a visitation schedule for parenting time. As is a common fact of life, however, circumstances can change, and these changes may impact your ability to comply with a family law order.

At Fahrendorf, Viloria, Oliphant & Oster L.L.P., our Reno family law attorneys understand that a change in circumstances can have far-reaching implications on one’s life and their obligations. As such, we provide clients who have experienced major changes with the representation needed to modify existing family law orders that better fit their current situation. We can help determine if you may be able to modify an order during an initial consultation.

Why Modify a Family Law Order?

To be able to modify a support or visitation order, it must be shown that there has been a substantial change in your circumstances. There are many reasons why a substantial change may occur that can justify a modification, including:

  • Job loss or wage cut that results in a change in financial circumstances
  • Accidents, illnesses, or injuries that prevent a person from working or being able to care for dependents
  • A change in a parent’s ability to provide for the best interests of a child, including drug or alcohol dependency, or other instability
  • Parental relocation
  • The preferences of a child, if they are mature and old enough
  • Domestic violence or abuse, or criminal charges

Every individual and family is unique, and every case is different. Whatever your needs may be, our Reno family law attorneys can evaluate your situation, explain your rights, and determine how we may be able to help you modify an existing court order if you have experienced a substantial change or if you are seeking a modification due to other changes in circumstances, including changes involving a child or ex-spouse.
