Appeals and Modifications

Thorough appeals and modivications with compassion and care.

In Atlanta and throughout Georgia, after a divorce matter has been concluded and a Final Judgment and Decree of Divorce has been entered in the matter, circumstances may change which may warrant a modification of custody, parenting time, child support and/or alimony. Although we try to draft agreements and/or orders to prevent future litigation, there are times when change is necessary. There are specific requirements pursuant to Georgia law in order to modify custody, which includes the need to show a substantial change in circumstances materially affecting the child (or children). Likewise, there are specific requirements and timeframes for modifications of child support and alimony. In Georgia, parenting time can be modified every two (2) years, without the need to show a substantial change in circumstance.

At Burney & Reese Family Law we are experts in modification actions and can advise you on whether or not you have a basis to file same. Contact us to set up a consultation, and discuss whether you have a basis to modify the terms of your current Court order.
