Houston Modifications Attorneys
Modifying Court Orders in Texas
Filing a modification case enables an individual to change the terms of an existing alimony, child support, or custody order, so it reflects their current circumstances more accurately. At Diggs & Sadler, our Houston modifications lawyers have decades of experience helping Houstonians adjust the terms of court orders.
Agreed vs. Contested Modifications
Before going further, it's important to note that individuals have two options when filing a modification case:
- Filing an agreed modification case. If both parties involved in the order agree it should be adjusted, they can sign an agreement indicating their desire to amend the order and how they wish it to change. The judge can then approve the agreement.
- Proceed with a contested modification. If the parties disagree on whether a custody order should be modified, the party who wishes to modify the order must file a petition to modify the parent-child relationship. At trial, both parties will have the opportunity to appear in court and present evidence to the judge supporting their case. The court will then make a final decision to either grant or deny the modification.
