Modifications

Experienced Columbus Family Law Attorneys

Some families require detailed agreements between spouses, parents, or partners for them to properly function. These can include divorce agreements, custody arrangements, and support orders, but no matter what the circumstances, reaching these agreements can be a sensitive matter. So, what happens when circumstances change and these agreements can no longer be met? In these instances, it may be proper to file for a modification in court.

If you believe your court-approved agreement needs to be adjusted, then contact us to speak to the dedicated Columbus family law attorneys at The Law Offices of Saia & Piatt, Inc. today.

Common Grounds for Modifications in Ohio

Grounds for modification usually need to be properly asserted and documented in court. Many times, these modifications are not agreed upon between the parties they affect, and even if they are, many of them still need approval from an Ohio judge.

Common reasons for modification requests include:

  • Dramatic change in income or assets
  • A change of income due to retirement
  • Relocation of one of the ex-spouses
  • Serious health developments of an ex-spouse or child
  • Remarriage
  • Certain instances of one ex-spouse's cohabitation with others
  • Death of an ex-spouse or a child
