Big life changes can raise family law issues for divorced parents

A divorce can change a person’s life quite a bit. However, it is certainly isn’t the last life-altering event a divorcing individual can experience. There are a variety of major changes that could potentially occur in a person’s life after they have gotten divorced. This includes changes in their health, their employment, their income or what state they will be living in.

Such changes can raise some special issues if the divorced person has a child. This is because there can be a variety of court orders in force regarding such an individual’s child, such as child custody and child support orders. Major changes in a divorced parent’s life could impact whether these orders, as they stand, remain feasible and consistent with the child’s best interests.

So, one of the things a major life event could give rise to for a divorced individual is the need to request a modification of a child support or child custody order. As this illustrates, a divorce being finalized does not mean a complete end to the divorce-related family law matters that could come up for a parent.

Another thing important to note is that, just as legal help can be a key thing for a parent to have during a divorce, it can also be an important thing to have access to when it comes to post-divorce matters like order modification requests. Modification matters have their own unique set of complexities it can be important to address properly.

In addition to providing divorce services, our Plano law firm assists individuals with post-divorce family law matters, such as issues regarding child support/custody modification.
