Helping You Modify Your Divorce Decree
Following the dissolution of a marital relationship, usually the last thing
that you want to do is maintain constant contact with your former spouse.

divorce process was filled with troublesome disputes.
Unfortunately, however, difficult circumstances often arise in life which
may require the initial terms of divorce to be altered. When you or your
former spouse have experienced significant changes, whether to your income,
health, or location, it may be necessary to modify the divorce decree
in terms of
child custody and
child support, or in terms of alimony or spousal support as well. Our devoted modification
attorney in Houston is determined to provide you with powerful advocacy
to protect your needs after a divorce, so just reach out to The Law Office
of Jimoh PC.

claims in Texas.
Modifications of Spousal Support
Usually, spouses who get divorced in the state of Texas do not receive
specific financial support apart from support for caring for any children
the couple shared. However, there are certain circumstances where a former
partner may be able to get monetary support called “maintenance,”
perhaps if they have a challenging health condition or do not have a job
or reliable income. This form of alimony is usually limited in its length
of time or schedule allotments.
In the case that the circumstances have dramatically changed for either
person, however, it might be necessary to modify the maintenance support.
One spouse might have found a job or the other might have lost one, or
a spouse might have recovered from an illness or the other may have become
disabled due to an accident. Whatever the scenario, our lawyer is ready
to help you demonstrate to the court why the former divorce terms should
Alterations of Child Support and Custody
When it comes to modifying either the “access” a parent has
(meaning a parent’s role as the possessory or managing conservator)
or changing the amounts that a parent contributes to child support, the
state of Texas maintains that the child’s best interest must be
the most important factor in determining divorce alterations.
Some scenarios which might allow these kinds of modifications include cases where:
- The circumstances of either parent or the child have substantially changed,
whether in regard to finances, health, or physical location
- The parent who originally had custodianship over the child has voluntarily
halted the child’s residency at their home, and has stopped being
the primary care provider
- The current monthly payment for child support is either 20% higher or lower
than is recommended by the guidelines for child support within Texas
