In life, circumstances often change. When these changes affect you and your children, it may be appropriate to modify the provisions of your divorce decree or other existing order. We can assist you with modification proceedings, including modification of conservatorship, possession, and child support provisions. These are the areas for which clients most often seek post-divorce modifications, since the continued well-being and best interest of the children are a priority.
“For those of you with some type of legal situation such as divorce, custody, child support, etc. and are unsure which attorney to select to best represent your needs…look no further. Mark Lewis is by FAR the best attorney I have ever come across and unfortunately, over the years, I have had to work with several different attorneys on several different issues.
Mark Lewis is not only the best at any type of family law, he is 100% on your side; both legally and emotionally. If he takes your case, you can rest assured that it becomes personal to Mark Lewis too. He values his clients and truly cares about them. Really.
I have used Mark Lewis for custody disputes, child support modifications and more. He is highly respected in the Denton community and he is a man of faith which shows through in everything he does.” –Sandra M. (Review from Avvo.com)
To modify a prior order, a party must show that a material and substantial change has occurred since the divorce was finalized and that any modification in child support, child custody, or visitation is in the best interest of the child. Most commonly, child support modifications are justified when the earning power of the parent responsible for paying child support has increased or decreased, or in situations where the child’s expenses or financial situation has changed. Custody or visitation modifications are commonly justified when something significant has changed in a parent’s living situation, when something has changed with the child’s lifestyle or education, or when the overall situation has simply become unworkable or inappropriate.
The legal team at Lewis & Passons, P.C. maintains the same level of expertise at negotiating for post-divorce modification as they do during the divorce itself, and will advocate for your children’s best interests, current and future, in obtaining a post-divorce modification.
