Therefore, it is important to have the counsel of a knowledgeable family law attorney. At the Harmon Law Office in Tempe, Arizona, we offer effective assistance with obtaining or contesting a modification.

Almost any order can be modified
All orders arising from a divorce can be modified, with the exception of a property division order. Our lawyers handle any type of modification petition, including:
- Child support modifications. We represent clients who wish to increase or decrease payments because of a significant change in income due to a change in job, an illness or a layoff.
- Alimony modifications. If one spouse's economic circumstances change, the court will consider a petition to modify a support order. If the spouse receiving alimony obtains a job with a good salary or remarries, the other spouse may be able to reduce or eliminate the amount he or she pays in spousal support.
- Child custody modifications. The firm advocates for mothers and fathers in custody modification proceedings. We represent parents who are moving out of the area as well as parents seeking to prevent the other from taking the child out-of-state. Similarly, we help parents petitioning for a modification because the other parent is no longer fit to have custody. We also defend clients who have been accused of abuse or neglect by the other party.
- Visitation/parenting time modifications. We defend and advocate for parents seeking a change in visitation. These can arise because one parent is not exercising visitation rights or is trying to prevent the other parent from having parenting time. Older children can ask for changes in visitation, which can lead to a modification of a visitation order.
