The most common agreements that can be modified include divorce decrees, legal separation agreements, custody orders, parenting time plans, and child support orders. Alimony awards may also be modified under certain circumstances.
An Arizona court will only modify child custody if there has been a material change in circumstances since the original order and if the modification is in the child’s best interests. Examples of material changes include one parent relocating, a change in work schedules, remarriage, or issues with child safety.
A parent seeking to modify a child support order must show a 15% or more change in their income or the other parent’s income lasting 12 months or longer. This substantial change in finances justifies recalculating support under the Arizona Child Support Guidelines.
Alimony can only be modified if the persona paying shows a change in financial circumstances that significantly impacts their ability to pay the amount ordered. Retirement may qualify if it substantially reduces income. Disability or major illness can also warrant a modification.
