Motion to Modify a Court Order or Judgment
When parties cannot agree to the details of an Order or Judgment that is currently in place, one of the parties may make a formal written request to the Court to make a decision as to whether their request will be granted or not. The party making the request must properly notify the other party (see the Service Packet below) of the court date. The parties will be given an opportunity to provide a legal argument and present their side of the story. Depending on the type of request and the arguments presented, the Court may make a decision at the first hearing or may require additional action by the parties and to make additional appearances.
