    No one can promise you this process is seamless, but what KJ did ensure was, regardless of the hurdles, they would remain committed until I had peace of mind and permanency in the USA. They were accountable and relentless in helping me purs...

    Relocating to the country as a student was incredibly challenging due to the significant differences in customs and day-to-day processes. The KJ team worked with my family and me prior to my arrival, and went above and beyond once I was in ...

    Working with Rana is a treat. She is extremely knowledgeable and quickly demonstrates a great capacity to foresee the caveats. Finding the most efficient way to avoid them is probably what characterizes her most. Very highly recommended!

Attorneys Succeed in Modifying Orders and Agreements

Skilled family lawyers assist clients in the Washington D.C. and Northern Virginia area seeking changes in child support, custody, or alimony

Every family's situation changes over time, and those changes may make it necessary to take legal action to ensure that existing court orders evolve to meet new family requirements. What was suitable to the parties at the time of the divorce or separation may no longer work as jobs change, children age and parents remarry. At Klingner Jazayerli LLP, we help families in the Washington D.C. and Northern Virginia area obtain appropriate modifications to child support, child custody, visitation, time-sharing and alimony orders. Modifications of these orders often require proof that there has been a substantial change in circumstances. Our attorneys have the skill and determination to present that evidence to the court. We also address relocation issues when parents move into or out of the area.

Responsive counselors advocate for modifications when circumstances warrant them

In family law cases, an existing court order can only be modified when there is a significant change in a parent's or child's situation. These changes may include a greater financial need or increase in income due to a job change or loss, a medical emergency involving the child, and a change in your child’s environment or time-sharing situation. We advocate for your rights in court to help you get the child support and child custody modifications you and your children need and guide you through the often difficult procedures to get results. We also help families with domestication of foreign or out-of-state judgments, assisting them in obtaining court orders that ask your local court to treat an order from another state as its own. Domestications for matters like child support and visitation can be especially useful when families with children move into or out of the state.

Family lawyers provide clients with individualized legal assistance

When you bring your modification case to our firm, we review your goals with you. Then we examine the existing agreements between you and your ex-spouse or child's parent. Together we set realistic, achievable objectives to bring before the judge. Whether you are seeking an adjustment in your spousal or child support, are looking to adjust your visitation schedule, or are attempting to become the primary custodian of your children, we can help. We also represent clients seeking to retain existing orders when requested modifications are not in their best interests or those of their children.
