Modifications and Enforcement
As experienced Maryland Family Law Attorneys, the lawyers at The Drazin Law Center, P.A. have successfully represented multitudes of individuals throughout the State of Maryland with their Modification of Order needs.
To modify or change an existing Maryland Domestic Relations Order (such as custody, visitation, or child support), the parent must first establish the existence of a substantial change in circumstances since the entry of then operative Court Order. A change in circumstance can be almost anything; but, the party requesting the modification must establish that the change has some material impact on the child. Examples of substantial changes in circumstance may be the remarriage of one parent, the relocation of a parent, and a significant prolonged change in a child's academic performance. If the Maryland Court determines that a substantial change in circumstance occurred, the Maryland Court will re-evaluate the then current facts and make a new determination of the issue based, once again, on the "best interests" ťof the child.
