Susanne Bonilla, Attorney at Law

Corpus Christi Divorce Modification Lawyer

The Law Office of Susanne Bonilla Harrold, P.C. handles divorce modifications for clients throughout Corpus Christi. Modifications are requested changes to final divorce decrees or any Suit Affecting the Parent-Child Relationship (SAPCR). Some common changes are made to child support custody, maintenance, and visitation agreements. Ms. Bonilla Harrold will answer any questions you may have about filing requirements or legally acceptable grounds for modification.

Modifications are often driven by changes in financial stability and health issues, but they are not automatic. You must formally request a change through the Texas legal system. In some cases, temporary modifications are granted to those with extreme circumstances, but the burden of proof must be compelling. In all cases, substantial evidence is required to prove the validity of the modification request. Ms. Bonilla Harrold will review your request and advise you on the best steps forward.

Understanding the Modification Process

Texas laws provide for divorce decree and SAPCR orders to be changed based on several factors. In general, the proposed modification must be filed in the same court as the original suit.
The basic steps to modify a final court order include:

  • Ensuring changes are not frivolous or designed to harass the involved parties
  • Filing a suit in the original court by a person or entity affected by the order
  • Notifying affected parties by citation
  • Presenting evidence to support the request

Ms. Bonilla Harrold will work with you to prepare the evidence and represent your position in court. The process may seem daunting, but she will simplify it and present an organized case on your behalf. Her end goal is to continue to provide an environment and lifestyle that best suits her clients’ needs.
