Petitioning For a Modification? Get Compassionate Representation From Baumgarten Law Offices

Modification of Post-Judgment Orders

What is needed to petition the court for a modification?

Washington's family courts are cautious when it comes to modifying court orders after a divorce, especially if the established arrangements have been in place for a considerable amount of time. The courts are always operating in the best interests of minor children and they often presume that children need a sense of regularity when, for example, it comes to being in the custody of their parents.

For this reason, the courts will require substantial proof that a change or modification to an existing child custody or support arrangement must be made. Once the court approves the modification, the new plan will officially become a legally binding court order.

Evidence that courts consider when evaluating petitions for modifications include:

  • Proof of move
  • Moving out of state
  • Job loss
  • Job relocation
  • Mutual agreements made by both parents
  • Evidence of domestic violence or abuse

We Are Here for You When Life Throws You a Curveball

Life is full of changes, accidents, unexpected events, and surprises. The courts recognize that some life changes can bring about significant difficulties for the entire family. If you are in need of a divorce order modification, do not go through the process alone. Even small mistakes can have serious implications for the entire family.

We would be happy to sit down with you and discuss your case in full detail. We can keep you informed about all aspects of your case so that you know what to expect during every stage of the modification process. We work hard to keep this process as easy as possible so that you aren't caught off guard by another surprise.
