Modifications Of Orders After Divorce
Whether you are hoping to revise an existing parenting plan, adjust child support payments, renegotiate spousal maintenance or make changes to any other court order, turn to The Law Center P.C.
Based in Highlands Ranch, Colorado, we are diligent and determined advocates on behalf of our clients’ parental rights and financial interests. Our lawyers represent both proponents and opponents of post-decree modifications. These include:
- Spousal maintenance (alimony) modifications
- Parental responsibility and parenting time (child custody and visitation) modifications
- Child support modifications
The most significant type of post-decree modification involves one parent moving away far enough that ties between the parties are substantially affected. Such a parental relocation does not have to involve moving from one state to another to be considered a weighty matter in the court’s eyes. For instance, simply moving from Denver to Colorado Springs can have a significant impact on a parenting arrangement.
Some of the most challenging cases involve parents who exercise equal parenting time. We strive to resolve the matter in a way that upholds our client’s interests and protects his or her relationship with the children.
When deciding whether to grant a relocation request, the Colorado family law courts may appoint a child and family investigator (CFI) to help determine what would be in the child’s best interests. The CFI will consider many factors, including:
- The role each parent has played in the past
- Whether the move would affect the child’s relationship with the other parent
- Educational options and other opportunities available to the child
