Child custody and child support orders are not generally altered unless one parent asks and has a need for it to happen. For example, if you have lost your job and you need your child support obligation to be reduced, there is a great chance that the court will allow a modification. This type of emergency situation can be an exception to the two-year waiting period of pursuing a modification.
Some of the requirements that the court will need to see in a modification case are:
- The suffering of a hardship
- A substantial change in the income of a parent
- A change in the needs of the child
These types of cases can be brought about before the two year period is completed. In order for a case to be an exception, a parent must have either suffered an involuntary loss of income or must have suffered from the noncustodial parent failing to abide by the visitation orders. After the two-year period has passed, a parent can ask for a modification of the visitation schedule without needing to show any change in circumstances. Custody orders, on the other hand, will still require a significant change in circumstances to modify. If you have specific questions about your need for a modification, do not hesitate to call our Alpharetta family law attorney. We can set up a case evaluation.
