If you have experienced a significant change in circumstances since your divorce, you may be eligible to file for a modification of existing court orders. Parents who were never married can also file for modifications. The attorneys of Bellon & Maningo, Ltd., in Las Vegas, can help you petition the court for a modification.

With regard to child support, you have a right to seek a modification of a court order every three years — more frequently if circumstances have changed significantly since the original order or last modification.

If you have a timely and good enough reason, you can request a modification on most anything the court orders, including financial support, visitation, holiday schedules and vacation schedules. Good reasons can include the loss of a job, a significant increase in the salary of the support-paying party, a move out of the region or out of state, a remarriage or the birth of additional children.
