Orders of the court are entered according to “the best interest of the child”. As children grow and situations change the court order will need modification to meet the changing needs of the child. It is not unusual for parents to modify provisions within a court order several times throughout the time they have a case with the Friend of the Court.
Modification processes are different depending on the status of a case within the court system. Parties who have recently filed a new case with the court pending a final order/judgment will need to seek resources outside of the Friend of the Court services. Parties that have an existing final order/judgment may use the processes through The Friend of the Court. A modification can be processed through the use of an attorney, in pro per (representing yourself) or through an administrative process allowed only to the Friend of the Court.
