Modifying a previous order can be done but it can also be challenging. This is because the laws of Nebraska require that certain standards be met before allowing modifications of previously ordered child support or child custody decrees and parenting plans. One example of this is that whichever party wants the modification, that person must be able to show the court that a material change in circumstance has occurred since the last order otherwise the modification may be denied.

There are a few rules when it comes to modifications of previous court orders. Changes can only be made when there has been a material change in circumstances as related to the previous order or agreement. If the parties cannot agree it will be up to the court to determine whether the evidence you have is sufficient to warrant a modification. Modifications are generally brought to revise or update custody, parenting schedules, support, or decision making authority and allocation.
