What if my divorce agreement is no longer fair?

| Jan 12, 2015 | Child Custody |

Life is full of unexpected twists and turns that nobody, neither courts nor divorcing couples, can see coming. Usually we simply roll with the punches and adjust to what life throws at us, but when the relationships we have with our former spouses and, more importantly, our children are put in jeopardy by these changes, things are not that simple. Fortunately for divorced individuals, the courts are not merciless, and there are policies in place that take these changing circumstances into consideration.

In the state of Texas, if you feel that your divorce agreement is no longer fair to your circumstances, you can file a petition to change the court order that was set during the original divorce proceedings. If the divorced parties are not in agreement about the changes, then the person filing must demonstrate that the changes have the child’s best interests at heart. Children who are 12 years old or older can also confide in the judge which parent he or she would like to live with, and this could also affect the custody agreement.

Much like changing custody, divorced individuals can also modify their child support obligations. Depending on what you would like to request and what your situation is, the way you go about this modification may change, but consulting with an attorney who is familiar with Texas law can simplify the process. Additionally, you can read this article for more information.

Everyone who is involved in a divorce case in which there is a child wants what is best for that child. Complications arise when the parties involved have different ideas for what is best for the child, and it is up to the courts to make the final decision based on the information they are presented. If you can prove that the information has changed, you may be able to have your custody or support order modified.
