Aggressive Advocacy For Family Law Modifications
Throughout a family’s life, things change. A career path changes, a job is lost, opportunities present themselves and people move. In family law, this often requires a modification. When the current family law orders are no longer supportive of the needs of a family, a modification can serve to establish a new schedule of custody and/or child support that is supportive of a family, emotionally and/or economically.
In order to establish a modification in Iowa, it is necessary to establish a material and substantial change in circumstances. In terms of custody, something has to have changed so substantially that it is no longer in a child’s interest to stay on the same schedule. In practice, this means that the child isn’t prospering; he or she may be missing school or acting out, or a parent’s living circumstance may have become unstable, among other things.
If you are faced with any of these issues, it is extremely important to partner with an attorney who will make the clearest and most convincing argument on your behalf.
