What is a Modification in Family Law?

A modification in family law is a document you file if you want to modify an order that has been put in place, such as a decree of divorce. It can modify anything from child custody—if there is a change in the circumstances of who has the children—to child support—if you want to increase, decrease, or eliminate the payments—to decrees that deal with property. You would file a modification of that order in the family courts and get a subsequent order with that modification as to what your wishes are.
