Strong Legal Advocacy When Your Circumstances Change
Whether overall economic conditions are positive or adverse and volatile, everyone's circumstances are likely to change substantially at some point after a divorce. Life has its ups and downs, certainly, and it would be utterly impractical for the orders that come out of a divorce to be permanent in all circumstances.
After a divorce or the resolution of a paternity case, courts in Orange County and throughout California retain the power to modify orders for child support, custody, visitation/parenting time, and certain other matters. If your circumstances have changed significantly, impacting your ability to pay support or comply with other orders, prompt action may be critical. We can help.
