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 they may 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 Viloria, Oliphant, Oster & Aman L.L.P., our Reno family law modification 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.
Contact our family law team today to discuss your case: (775) 227-2280. Your initial consultation is completely confidential.
When Can You Modify a Family Law Order in Nevada?
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 cuts that result 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
All individuals and families are unique, meaning every case is different. Whatever your needs may be, our Reno family law modification 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 in circumstances, or if you are seeking a modification due to other changes in circumstances, including changes involving a child or ex-spouse, Viloria, Oliphant, Oster & Aman L.L.P. can help.
