When Can You Modify a Custody or Support Order in Oklahoma?

After a divorce, court orders regarding child custody and spousal support are final and binding. Typically, they may be modified if there is a substantial change in circumstances for either party. However, even if there is no change in circumstances, you may still be able to modify a court order by working directly with your spouse to reach an agreement that a judge can sign.

Changes in circumstances include:

  • Remarriage
  • Change of employment or loss of a job
  • Incidents of domestic violence
  • Debilitating illness or injury

Furthermore, if one party is refusing visitation rights or wants to give up custody, the court will generally agree to modify an agreement. With our experienced Oklahoma City attorneys handling modifications to court orders in all family law matters, you can receive informative legal services from start to finish. We can determine your options and walk you through the necessary steps as you seek to change a court agreement.

Depending on the situation, you may seek to modify a variety of court orders. These include:

In order to modify a child support or custody arrangement, you must prove that the change is in the child’s best interests. Courts will also take the circumstances of the other parent into consideration. When one parent wants to relocate, the court will look at several factors. These involve whether or not the move will improve the child’s life, and whether or not the move will positively affect the child’s relationship with the noncustodial parent. Furthermore, courts will consider the response of the opposing parent when making a final decision to allow relocation.
