Motion Requesting Modification

Use this packet to request a CHANGE of custody, parenting time and/or child support, and where there is NOT agreement between the parents on the change. The forms in this packet may be used by parents with Judgments of Dissolution, Judgments of Separation, and unmarried parents who have obtained a Judgment regarding custody, parenting time and/or child support. If the parents agree on the change, use the forms in the "Stipulation to Modify" packet instead.

Response to a Modification Request

If the other parent asks the court to change the custody, parenting time and/or child support provisions in a judgment, and you do not agree with ALL the requested changes, you must "respond" in WRITING by the deadline specified in the "Order to Show Cause" served upon you, typically 30 days. A response allows you to object to the changes and state facts telling the court the reasons you disagree. Some courts may also require a personal appearance in court on a scheduled hearing date which will be listed on the "Order to Show Cause" that is served on you.

Motion Requesting Modification Due to Military Deployment

Use this packet to request a CHANGE of custody, parenting time, and/or child support due to military deployment of a parent. This packet is for use whether or not there is agreement between the parents on the change. Forms in this packet may be used by parents with judgments of dissolution, judgments of separation, and unmarried parents who have obtained a judgment regarding custody, parenting time, and/or child support.
