Child Support and Custody Modification Attorneys in Omaha
Post-Judgment Modifications in Nebraska
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.

Circumstances That May Lead to Modified Custody or Parenting Plans
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 allocation.
Some examples of situations which may require a modification to your current order:
- Significant changes to a parent’s work schedule, this may be involuntary
or voluntary be the change may impede the parent’s availability
to care for the child.
- Changes in a child’s physical, mental, or emotional development,
which may require an adjustment to the time a child spends with each parent.
- A change in a parent’s income may not impact custody but it may warrant
a recalculation of child support
- If a parent wishes to relocate out of state. This may be due to work, family,
or other interests but this would require the court to approve the move
if it involves the child.
