After a divorce, there can be a disagreement regarding the children’s placement or their financial support. The court will apply different standards in determining a request to change placement based upon how long it has been since the divorce. If a custodial parent decides to relocate more than 150 miles away or out of state, they must have the consent of the former spouse or obtain a court order to move with the children. Even those without children might need to change alimony or maintenance payments. Whether in litigation or mediation, Derr & Villarreal, LLC Attorneys & Mediators take a thorough and careful approach to requests to change a divorce agreement.

Changes Involving Alimony
Some couples at divorce establish non-modifiable alimony or maintenance but for those who do not establish non-modifiable maintenance, a change in financial circumstances is necessary to modify alimony:
- A change of employer
- Reduced salary
Changes Involving Child Custody & Support
Changes to child support can be based on a number of factors including a change in the child’s age or specific medical or educational needs. Changes can also be based on the circumstances surrounding the parent such as loss of a job or other significant changes in the financial situation.
