Child Support Modifications Excellent Representation, Superior Experience

Seeking a Modification to Child Support?

Work with Our Divorce Attorney in Douglas County

When you and your spouse divorce and care for your children in a new capacity, one of the main concerns that needs to be addressed is child support. Even if one of you has greater custody rights over the child, it does not always mean that the other parent will not be required to still contribute to the child's expenses.

A couple can choose to make a decision on child support together, but due to a difference of opinion and the emotional circumstances of these matters, it is often left up to the court to provide a ruling. When divorce terms are set, the child support decision will be included.

The issue that can occur for many parents is when the terms of the divorce no longer fit the current situation. Each person's circumstances can change and there may be a need for support to be increased or decreased.

When seeking to have child support modified, the court will need to be persuaded that a change in circumstances has occurred. The change will also need to be significant enough to warrant the modification to support payments. This may include a change in the financial needs of the child, the involuntary loss of a job, an increase in income for a parent, and more.

Howard Law Group: Where Clients Come First

Modifications should always be made legally since the verbal agreement of you and the other parent may not be enough to stand in court. If you have lost your job it is important that you petition for the modification immediately so that you are not left with payments you simply cannot afford. When you are dealing with a family law case, experience matters.
