When a divorce is settled, it may seem like all issues have been laid to rest. In reality though, modifications are often required following an initial divorce settlement as needs change, new families grow, and other factors serve to render the original decree no longer useful. When you find yourself in this situation, having an experienced and attentive divorce modification attorney on your side is essential to ensuring your rights are protected, your new needs are met, and the best interests of all involved parties are served.

Divorce Modification in Texas: What can be Modified?
In Texas, divorce modification may involve any issues settled in the initial decree. This can include:
- Modification of spousal maintenance
- Modification of child support
- Modification of child custody and visitation
Changes to child support, visitation, and custody are the most common reasons for seeking divorce modification in Texas, but any reason you feel your decree may need modification can be discussed in more detail during your initial consultation with Attorney Kutty. During this visit, Mrs. Kutty will listen to your concerns, assess your situation, and help you determine if modification proceedings are the best option for your needs.
A Closer Look at Modifying Child Support, Custody, and Visitation in Texas
Changes in financial circumstances most often lead to modifications in child support, particularly when one parent begins making substantially more or less money. For modifications, there is no change to the way child support is calculated from initial proceedings, making it important that Attorney Kutty fully assess both you and the other parent’s resources before actual changes are requested. When you contact our Sugar Land office to schedule your initial consultation, we will provide you with information on what you can bring to this meeting to help Mrs. Kutty in determining if modification is best at this time.
Child custody and visitation do not rely on changes to financial situations, but they can be related to changes in family structure, the long distance move or return of a parent, and other factors unique to each family’s situation. As with all aspects of your divorce, custody agreements in Texas are binding, but not set in stone. When situations demand their modification, Attorney Kutty is here to help ensure the best interests of you and your children are met.
