Modifying Child Custody Agreements
When Modification Becomes Necessary
Many aspects of a divorce or parental arrangement can be modified by the consent of each party or via court order. This is crucial as many arrangements that make sense at the time they are put in place fail to meet the reality of a situation years down the road. When modification becomes necessary or one party fails to uphold his or her end of the agreement, it is important to have the advice and representation of a knowledgeable lawyer.

Even when both parties agree on a course of action for modifying an agreement or court order, it is important to go through proper channels to obtain court approval. Otherwise, either party could be found in contempt of court.
In order for modification to be approved, there must be a significant material change. For example, the loss of a job or the start of a new career could lead to modification of child support due to the change in a parent’s income. Allocation of parental responsibility could be modified due to the changing needs of a child or a parent seeking to relocate. Our attorneys can help you determine whether your situation represents a material change in circumstances and diligently pursue an outcome that protects your interests.
When one party fails to uphold his or her end of a court order or divorce agreement, he or she may be found in contempt of court. We are able to assist people who are pursuing contempt orders as well as defend against these orders in courts throughout Colorado.
