San Diego Divorce Modification Lawyer
As your attorney, I make every effort to reach enduring divorce settlements. And if you had a different attorney in the past, there is no doubt that attorney made every effort as well.

Do You Want to Modify a Court Order for Child Custody?
Child custody modifications are granted when it can be shown there is or will be a significant change in material circumstances. It must also be shown that the modification will be beneficial to the children and in their best interests. As an attorney, I offer assistance to parents who are requesting modifications and those who are contesting modifications. Examples of changes that may merit a modification include a parent desiring to relocate to another state with the children, a military parent's deployment or even a teenager expressing an interest to live with the other parent.
Do You Want to Modify a Court Order for Child Support?
Like custody modifications, child support modifications are granted when it can be shown there has been a significant change in material condition and that the change will be in the best interests of the children. My law firm represents people who are involved in modifications because of changes such as the following:
- Increase in income
- Decrease in income
- Parent returns to school
- Financial needs of the children have changed
Of course, there are many more ways in which life can change, leaving you to wonder if a modification to an existing court order can help you and your children meet those changes. I provide the help you and your kids need to move forward into the next stage of your life.
