Variation of Court Orders
A variation order allows for changes to areas such as maintenance, child custody, and care orders.
Helping you navigate changes in court orders after divorce
Following a divorce, it's not uncommon for circumstances to evolve, necessitating adjustments to existing Court Orders. These changes can arise from personal or financial shifts that occur naturally over time.
Common reasons for varying a Court order include:
Changing Family Dynamics: The expenses related to children and/or an ex-spouse may fluctuate, whether due to increased needs or a decrease in financial obligations.
Financial Transitions: The financial situation of the party responsible for maintenance may also undergo changes, such as job loss, reduced earnings, or illness. These shifts can significantly impact their ability to meet existing obligations.
Best Interests of the Children: In some cases, both parties may recognize that modifying the custody, care, and control of children is in the children's best interests as they grow and circumstances evolve.
To amend an existing Court Order, you must initiate a legal process known as an application to vary an Order. While pursuing a change, it's advisable to seek agreement between the parties involved rather than resorting to a contested application.
