Child Support Modifications
We can help if you are seeking or opposing a child support modification. If you feel you are paying too much support or not receiving enough support, our attorneys can perform a guideline child support calculation on your behalf to determine if you have grounds for a child support modification.
You may be able to obtain a modification of an existing child support order if there has been a significant change of circumstances since the time that your last child support order was entered. A job layoff, changing needs of a minor child or other significant changes may warrant a child support modification. In addition, you may be entitled to a review of your child support award or obligation if it has been at least three years since your last child support order was entered.
If you have grounds for a modification, we can make all necessary filings with the court, negotiate on your behalf to seek a resolution of your child support dispute, and vigorously protect your rights and interests at any necessary hearings.
Visitation And Child Custody Modifications
We can help if you are seeking to modify custody or visitation. To modify an existing order, you must prove that there has been a significant change of circumstances. You must also prove that the requested change of custody or the modification of a visitation schedule is in the best interests of the minor child.
Changes to a visitation schedule are sought on a variety of grounds by parents, including changes to a work schedule, the changing needs of children and other factors. While minor or moderate changes to a visitation schedule are more easily obtained than a change of custody, there are a number of reasons why a change of custody may be warranted. If your child’s physical or emotional welfare is in jeopardy for any reason, contact us immediately for assistance.
If your financial circumstances have changed significantly since the time that an alimony order was entered, you may be able to obtain an alimony modification. Let us review the facts of your case to help you determine your best course of action.
