Grounds for a Modification Request
Life after divorce is subject to a wide variety of changes. Sometimes these changes bring about the need to modify an existing court order. However, modifying a divorce order in North Carolina is not possible for everyone. Only those who have experienced a substantial change in circumstances will be eligible to file for a modification.
Examples of what may constitute a substantial change of circumstances include:
- Changes in income
- Loss of job
- New job
- Increased cost of living
- Cohabiting with a new spouse
- Illness or disability
- Child abuse or neglect
- Change in living situation
- Violation of court order
- Present or future well-being of a child
- The wishes of a child
- The best interest of a child
- Drastic improvement in a parent’s behavior
Whether the above grounds will be determined to be a qualifying change in circumstances will depend on the type of family law order that you are trying to change. The court will decide whether these changes have affected the interest of all parties involved and consider what impact the proposed change will have on each person. A skilled divorce lawyer can be helpful in presenting convincing arguments to support your agenda.
