When Can a Spouse Pursue a Modification of Judgment?

Either spouse is eligible to file for a modification of judgment whenever there is a change in their financial circumstances, which can apply to child support, child custody, or spousal support. The person requesting the modification must be able to prove their case, which means that working with a modification of judgment attorney can offer a path to the most successful outcome.

The North Carolina court examines the following to determine a change in circumstances:

  • Unemployment
  • Illness or disability
  • Increased living expenses
  • Changes to income
  • Relocation
  • Moving in with a partner
  • Lifestyle changes

Modifications can include an increase or decrease in the award, whether financially or regarding the amount of time spent with the child. No matter what the situation, the court first determines what is in the best interests of the child before making a modification. Since the original court order is legally binding, it is essential to work with a lawyer who understands how to prove your case before a judge.

The Opinions That Matter Most

Read What Our Clients Are Saying
    “I am extremely pleased with his service and would recommend him in a heartbeat!”
    I was facing 3 charges, granted the police officers completely overcharged and without merit, however, Trevor knew what to do in order to prepare a strong case to make sure that when he spoke with the DA this would be clearly displayed. If convicted of one of the charges I was accused of it would have put my employment in jeopardy. Needless to say, I was overjoyed and elated when I received his call that "ALL" charges had been dismissed! He charged me a reasonable fee and accepted a payment plan! I am extremely pleased with his service and would recommend him in a heartbeat!

    “I have my kids thanks to Mr. Avery.”
    I hired Mr. Avery to represent me for my custody case. He was upfront with me about what to expect right from the beginning and he came through. He was easy to talk to, and I knew he was being honest with me about my case. I had to call him a couple of times after business hours because of my work schedule and he still made time to answer my questions. I have my kids thanks to Mr. Avery. I would recommend him to anyone.
