Reasons for Family Law Modifications

There are any number of reasons you may seek to modify a past family law order. The most common reasons are moving out of state, or financial losses that change your ability to provide the full payments for child or spousal support.

Here are some common changes that can impact your ability to observe post-divorce orders:

  • You or your ex-spouse have lost a job, or another major source of income
  • You’ve been relocated for a job
  • You or your ex-spouse are moving out of state
  • Your child’s preferences and needs have changed significantly
  • You’ve suffered from a medical emergency, like a chronic illness or major injury

No matter what challenges you’re facing, our Omaha modification attorneys can stand by your side. More than just a law firm, our team at Burnett Wilson Law is fully dedicated to helping people recover from life’s most difficult times, and making sure that the law accounts for your changing circumstances.

If you’re considering a modification to your divorce agreement, child custody decree, or child support order, give us a call at (402) 810-8611.

Protecting Your Family’s Future

Failing to meet your payments on alimony or child support can carry serious consequences. If you’re already financially struggling, it can be daunting to face the liens, wage garnishments, and license suspensions that come with falling into delinquency on your family law orders. On the other hand, if you’re relying on your ex-spouse for crucial payments, you may be worried about paying for your child’s healthcare bills or even putting food on the table.
