Modifications Lawyers in Vancouver

Requesting Changes to Existing Court Orders

A child support award or parenting plan that may have worked in the past may no longer be suitable for your current circumstances. The Vancouver modifications attorneys at Beaty Hatch PC guide clients through the process of requesting child support, spousal support, and parenting plan modifications.

Contact us at (360) 566-6966 for a consultation to discuss the possibility of modification.

Child Support Modifications

If there has been a dramatic increase or decrease in the income of either parent, a child support award may need to be adjusted. There are two ways to do this: By filing a motion for adjustment or a petition for a modification. The best course of action depends on your situation, so it is important to seek the advice of an attorney.

Modifying a Parenting Plan

Modifications to a parenting plan can be either minor or major, depending on the situation and what needs to be changed. When the parents do not both agree to the change, the parent requesting the modification must be able to show adequate cause by demonstrating a substantial change in circumstances. Minor modifications may be for a local move or a change in work schedule.

Reasons for major modifications include:

  • Relocation out of the state or country
  • Suspicions that the other parent is neglecting or abusing the child
  • A parent being held in contempt at least twice for violating the residential schedule

Major modifications are generally considered highly disruptive to children, and courts only allow them in limited circumstances. Our Vancouver modifications attorneys start by reviewing the facts of your case to determine if the dispute can be resolved in a less adversarial way. If not, we advocate for you and strongly represent your interests.

Call Beaty Hatch at (360) 566-6966 to discuss your situation and learn if a modification is possible.
