Certain provisions of court orders and agreements may be subject to modification in the event of a change in circumstance.
Court orders regarding child support, alimony, and child custody are subject to future modification if there has been a material change in circumstances since the court issued the last order.
Agreements regarding custody and child support are always modifiable by the court. Other provisions of an agreement between the parties may or may not be modifiable depending on the terms the parties agreed to. For example, the court cannot order non-modifiable alimony, but parties can agree on alimony terms that will be non-modifiable. However, agreements and court orders regarding property division are not generally subject to future modification.
