Modifying Existing Court Orders

How a Valencia Divorce Attorney Can Help

There are many different reasons to modify an existing court order. Typically there is a change
in the original circumstances that cause one party to request a modification.

As in all family law issues, the parties can agree to the modification without court intervention.
This is most often accomplished by the parties having an attorney draft a stipulated
agreement, laying out the new agreement. Once completed, and signed by the parties, this
stipulation will be filed with the court and upon the judges signature, it will become the new

In the event the parties can not agree on the modification, the party requesting the modification
must file a Request for Order, which will lay out in detail the modification requested and the
reasons for it. The other party will be served, and they will be entitled to respond to the
Request for Order of Modification and a hearing will occur so that both sides can argue their
case before the judge. If the judge is persuaded to modify the existing court order, the new
order will become the terms the parties must abide by.

Modification orders are often related to the following:

  • Modification or Termination of Spousal Support
  • Modification of Child Support
  • Modification of Child Custody (Legal or Physical or both)
  • Modification of Visitation
