Making Changes To Existing Court Orders

Children and circumstances change over the years and orders pertaining to children may need to be modified to meet the children's new needs. With 20 years of legal experience, Oliver Family Law can provide you with the guidance you need if you think you and your children need to modify the parenting plan, custody and/or child support amount.

If you have questions about what it takes to modify child custody or child support orders in Howard County, Carroll County, Anne Arundel County or anywhere in Maryland, contact Oliver Family Law online or call Margaret Oliver at 410-740-1180 to schedule a consultation.
