How Do Post-Divorce Modifications Work in TX?

When a court finalizes a divorce, it issues various court orders that detail how the divorcees should handle processes such as property division, child custody and support, spousal maintenance, etc. These orders are based on the parties' circumstances at the time of filing for divorce.

However, over time, court orders often become outdated and are no longer an accurate reflection of an equitable arrangement between parties. When an order becomes inequitable, one or both parties can file an order modification case to change the terms of a court order.

There are three common reasons parties seek an order modification:

  1. They mutually agree an order is outdated. If both parties want to update a court order, they can draft an agreement detailing terms for how they'd like to adjust the order. If a judge approves of the agreement, they'll sign it, finalizing the modifications.
  2. One (or both) party experiences material or substantial changes. If a party experiences major changes such as losing their job, receiving a promotion, remarrying, etc., they may be able to file for an order modification even if the other party disagrees with the need for one. If the parties do disagree, they must attend a court hearing and present their cases. If the judge agrees with the need for a modification, they'll update the order.
  3. The laws change. On rare occasions, Texas legislators may update the Texas Family Law code to change how child support gets calculated. When that happens, a party can file for an order modification if they would owe a different amount under the new guidelines.
