When can a spouse pursue a modification of judgment?

Either spouse is eligible to file for a modification of judgment whenever there is a change in their financial circumstances, which can apply to child support, child custody, or spousal support. The person requesting the modification must be able to prove their case, which means that working with a modification of judgment attorney can offer a path to the most successful outcome.

The North Carolina court examines the following to determine a change in circumstances:

  • Unemployment
  • Illness or disability
  • Increased living expenses
  • Changes to income
  • Relocation
  • Moving in with a partner
  • Lifestyle changes

Modifications can include an increase or decrease in the award, whether financially or regarding the amount of time spent with the child. No matter what the situation, the court first determines what is in the best interests of the child before making a modification. Since the original court order is legally binding, it is essential to work with a lawyer who understands how to prove your case before a judge.
