We work to Modify Orders and Agreements
We can help you make changes in child support, custody or alimony orders
Every family's situation changes over time, and those changes may make it necessary to take legal action to ensure that existing court orders evolve to meet new family requirements. What was suitable to the parties at the time of the divorce or separation may no longer work as jobs change, children age and parents remarry. At Jackson Law Firm, PLLC, we help families obtain appropriate modifications to child support, child custody, visitation, time-sharing and alimony orders. Modifications of these orders often require proof that there has been a substantial change in circumstances. We have the skill and determination to present that evidence to the court. We also address relocation issues when parents move into or out of state.
We advocate for modifications when circumstances warrant them
In family law cases, an existing court order can only be modified when there is a significant change in a parent's or child's situation. These changes may include a greater financial need or change in income due to a job change or loss, a medical emergency involving the child, and a change in the child’s environment or time-sharing situation. We advocate for client rights in court to help them get the child support and child custody modifications they and their children need, and guide them through the often difficult procedures to get results. We also help families with domestication of foreign or out-of-state judgments, assisting them in obtaining court orders that ask Mississippi to treat an order from another state as its own. Domestications for matters like child support and visitation can be especially useful when families with children move into or out of the state.
Individualized legal assistance
When a client bring their modification case to our firm, we review their goals with them. Then we examine the existing agreements between them and their ex-spouse or child's parent. Together we set realistic, achievable objectives to bring before the judge. Whether they are seeking an adjustment in spousal or child support, are looking to adjust the visitation schedule, or are attempting to become the primary custodian of their children, we can help. We also represent clients seeking to retain existing orders when requested modifications are not in their best interests or those of their children.
