Charlotte Divorce Modification Attorneys

Modifying Support or Custody Orders in the Charlotte & Weddington Areas

Even after a divorce is finalized, there may still be opportunities to amend certain aspects of the agreement. If you have experienced a significant change in circumstances that would warrant a change in your current custody or support arrangements, a Charlotte divorce modification lawyer at Epperson Law Group, PLLC can help you take the appropriate steps to modify the existing court order.

From our offices in Charlotte and Boone, our divorce attorneys represent clients in Charlotte and throughout the surrounding communities. We have over seven decades of combined legal experience to apply to your case, and the resources to properly investigate and litigate or negotiate on your behalf.

The “Substantial Change of Circumstances” Requirement

For a court to consider your request to modify a court order, you will need to show that you or your ex-spouse has had a substantial change of circumstances. Our Charlotte divorce attorneys can assist you with this, gathering the necessary evidence and documents to support your request for modification.

Common reasons for individuals to seek post-decree modifications include:

  • Significant change in income, which may allow for alimony or child support modification.
  • One parent requests to move out of state or country, which may allow for custody and parenting plan modification.
  • Onset of a substance abuse problem with alcohol or drugs, which may allow for custody and parenting plan modification.
  • Recovery from substance abuse issues, which may allow for custody and parenting plan modification.
  • Significant change in the medical, emotional, financial or educational needs of a child, which may allow for custody, support, and parenting plan modification.
