Divorce & Child Custody Modifications

Circumstances Changed? Let Our Experience Help You Change the Agreements.

It’s easy to get the idea that once a divorce or child custody agreement is final, no changes can be made. However, the terms of these agreements are based on the circumstances at the time they were made. What was fair at that time may not be fair at all now.

If changes in the circumstances can be proven to be substantial by a Sugar Land divorce modifications attorney, then the law would favor making changes in the agreements. At the Vendt Law Firm, P.L.L.C, we are prepared to fight to help you achieve a settlement that suits your evolving needs.

Divorce Agreement Modifications

Making changes to finalized divorce agreements is not frequently done.

Some of the changes in circumstances that might justify a modification include:

  • One of the parties has a substantial increase in income
  • One of the parties has a substantial decrease in income or financial hardship
  • One of the parties has a major change in health
  • One of the parties gets remarried

If what you are paying alimony or receiving in alimony or child-support does not reflect your current situation, contact and an experienced divorce modification attorney in Sugar Land at (832) 263-6770.

Child Custody Modifications

You might have heard the term conservatorship. That is just the legal term used in Texas to describe child custody matters. Child custody agreements are made with the child’s best interests in mind—for that moment in time. But times can change. Are things different now?

A judge may consider your petition to modify your existing agreement for a variety of reasons based on new circumstances, such as:

  • Changes in employment status
  • Changes in marital status
  • Relocations
  • Abuse or neglect by a parent
  • Health issues of the parents or child
  • Incarceration of a parent
  • Substance abuse by a parent
  • Wishes of the child (if 12 or older)

If your child’s best interests would be supported by making changes to your custody agreement, let The Vendt Law Firm, P.L.L.C. help ensure you make those changes. You owe your child nothing less.
