Modifications of a Nevada Divorce Court Order

By Gordon Law Offices  Jul. 1, 2013 11:48a

Once your divorce has been finalized, it may seem that the process is over. Divorce decrees, however, are never final because circumstances can change in your life, your ex-spouse's life, and the lives of your children in the future. When these changes occur and are sufficient enough to require a retooling of child custody, child support, visitation plans, or spousal support, a modification of court orders concerning the issue may need to be brought before the family court. Without the change being approved by the court, you will have no legal standing for any alteration.

Various changes can bring about the need for a court order to be modified. These changes can include a change in one's employment or income, the development of health problems for a parent or a child, a remarriage, the need for one parent to relocate to another city or area, domestic violence incidents, drug or alcohol abuse or child abuse on the part of a parent, or a substantial change in the needs of the child. For example, at least a 20 percent change in one's gross monthly income will need to be shown in order to modify a court order regarding alimony. The person requesting the modification of any family court order will need to provide a valid reason and sufficient evidence to back the request. To maximize your chances for success, it is best to get the help of a qualified family law attorney who has experience in your local courts.
