There are very few things in family law that are considered permanent given the impact of each decision a judge may make, especially regarding alimony, child custody and child support. Fortunately, the court recognizes this and has set up a process for modifying various court orders. However, certain elements must exist and must be proven for any court order to be modified. Contact a Charlotte modification orders lawyer to learn more about your rights.

Many individuals naturally think of support or custody issues as the most likely candidates for modification. In truth, nearly every aspect of a family law order can be altered through the courts, including:
- Child support
- Child custody
- Visitation agreements
- Equitable distribution orders
- Post-separation support
One of the challenges inherent in the post-decree modification is the time that it takes to effect change. Many individuals will get frustrated and attempt to reach a verbal agreement with the other party. This might seem like a reasonable short-term solution; however, this verbal agreement cannot be enforced by the court. It is wise to work through the legal system — frustrating as it might be — to ensure you ultimately have an enforceable document that reflects the changes in your circumstances.
