Motion to Change
Getting A Motion To Change
A motion to change is required to change or vary a final order to end a final order regarding such as terms as support, custody, access, or restraining/non harassment order.
The most common reason for this would be to change a child support or spousal support order. This could be because:
Your income has changed
The support payor's income has changed
The child has finished school, married, or moved out on their own
The child or children are now living with the payor or a different person
The person receiving spousal support is now able to support himself or herself
These changes are called "material change in circumstances" which is a significant change which, if known at the time of the original order, would have resulted in a different order being made. You must be able to show the court that there has been a change in the order to change the order.
