Modifications

  • Grounds for Modification - An action for modification can only be brought when there is a material and substantial change in circumstances. The standards for modifications is extremely fact specific and you should consult an attorney to decide whether your change in circumstances rise to the level of a modification.
  • Common Uses - Modifications are most commonly used when seeking a reduction, termination or an increase of alimony or child support payments, and when seeking changes in custody arrangements.
