Our family law attorney can represent you during the process and ensure that your rights are protected. To schedule a free consultation, please call 801-428-0719 or contact us online.
A Change in Circumstances May Require Changes to Court Orders
In Utah, you are allowed to modify spousal support/alimony orders, child custody and child support orders, and visitation/parent time orders. The property and asset division, however, is considered final and may not be changed.
To modify a court order, at least one of the parties must have a significant and material change in circumstances. Depending on the type of order you seek to modify, this may include issues such as:
- A job loss or other significant financial change
- The changing needs of a child
- A parent or child whose health has declined
- The death of a parent
- A parent becoming unfit or unable to care for a child
When court orders involving custody, parent time or child support are modified, the best interests of the children are used in the determination of the modification. If spousal support was part of a prenuptial agreement, modification may not be possible.
