Child Support Changes/Modifications
Time doesn't stand still – and neither do people's lives. The courts recognize that financial circumstances change. If the situations of your life have affected your original child support obligations, you may be entitled to request a modification to your existing child support order.
You might be granted a child support modification if circumstances have changed such as:
- Loss of income of the non-custodial parent
- Your children have moved out of the jurisdiction and your parenting time has been greatly affected
- Your child has been spending significantly more time in your home and the original anticipated percentage of parenting time has been greatly impacted
- Your child has extraordinary educational or medical needs that were not anticipated in the original order
- An increase or decrease in income of either party
There are many other scenarios where the court will consider a child support change. It is best to talk to an experienced professional at our firm to discuss your specific circumstances. With an experienced child support attorney behind you who has a thorough understanding of the complex financial issues and the need for accurate valuations, you will have the ability to present and support your claim for an upward or downward child support modification with confidence.
