Common types of variation orders
Clients regularly approach us to seek advice on whether they can adjust their existing Court Orders. These types of requests can be sought for a number of reasons, but the most common applications tend to concern children’s custody, care and control, division or transfer of matrimonial assets, and/or wife maintenance obligations.
In order to alter an existing Court Order, you must make an application to the Court known as applications to vary an Order.
Common reasons for variation orders
In the majority of cases, the request for a variation order arises due to personal or financial changes that have occurred through the passing of time. For example,
- The expenses of the child(ren) (and/or wife) may have changed, either increasing or decreasing;
- The financial circumstances of the party paying the maintenance for the child (and/or wife) may also have changed. For example, they may have been retrenched, suffered a loss in earnings, illness, etc. All of these factors may contribute to the individual no longer being able to pay the previously agreed sum of money.
- Both parties agree to a change in the custody, care and control of children, and the change is made in the children’s best interests.
- The previous order on the matrimonial property is not workable, and it should be changed to reflect the new circumstances. For example, the property is to be transferred to one party instead of being sold, or vice versa.
If you feel that such situations apply to you, please contact PKWA Family Lawyers to understand your options in applying for a variation of a court order.
