Helpful Advocacy For Post-Judgment Modifications
After you receive a court order regarding child custody, child support or another family law issue, your life circumstances might change significantly. This could prompt the need for a modification request. In certain situations, you can petition the court to adjust an existing order to better suit your current life.
At the San Antonio family law firm of Ruiz & Associates, PLLC, we assist clients in the Bexar County area with all aspects of post-judgment modifications. George C. Ruiz, our modification attorney, can represent you during the petitioning process, at the court hearing and at trial, if necessary.
When Can I Get A Modification In Texas?
Courts only grant modifications if your life has changed substantially. Examples include:
- Job loss
- Significant increase or decrease in income
- Addiction or serious mental illness
- Domestic abuse
If you and your former partner agree on a modification, you can sign a document to amend your existing court order. However, if you do not agree, a judge must decide whether to grant a modification. When issuing a modification for custody (conservatorship) arrangements, the court uses the standard of the child’s best interests.
Prepared To Fight For You
We understand how important it is to modify an existing order to fit your new life. When it comes to advocating for your family legal needs, Mr. Ruiz can be a bulldog when necessary. While he usually helps clients achieve positive solutions out of court, he is not afraid of a trial – especially when it comes to protecting your parental rights.
