Ontario Variation Lawyers
Post-Divorce Variation of Parenting & Support Orders
After a divorce has been finalized and the terms of parenting time, decision-making responsibility, child support, and property division have been agreed upon, a significant change in circumstances may warrant a variation of a current court order. This most often pertains to parenting or support orders. In these situations, it will be important to understand what rights and options you have in requesting a variation.
Our Ontario divorce modification & variation lawyers can help you. Since 1994, Feldstein Family Law Group P.C. has worked people in Toronto, Mississauga, Markham, Oakville, Vaughan, and the surrounding areas to represent the interests of our clients in all divorce and family law matters.

Because we offer a range of services based on your budget and needs, you can also count on our affordability without sacrificing efficacy.

Modifying a Parenting Order in Ontario
To successfully and legally alter a final order regarding parenting time or decision-making responsibility or an agreement for support, you must initiate a Motion to Change at the appropriate court. In most cases, this will be the court that granted the original order.
There are two different routes wherein such a motion can be initiated and then executed:
- By filing a Consent Motion to Change (if you and the other parent are in agreement with the proposed change); or
- By filing a Motion to Change (if you and the other parent are not in agreement and you are the one proposing the change).
If your former spouse or partner has already filed a Motion to Change, and you wish to contest this, you can file a Response to Motion to Change.
Determining which forms to file and how to properly fill these out can be a daunting prospect. Our Ontario modification & variation lawyers can handle every aspect of your proposed variation for you, or we can offer unbundled legal services to address only those issues with which you need assistance. Regardless, our approach will be tailored to fulfil your needs.
