While a court order is meant to be a finalized document, there are many circumstances that can arise where the law can be utilized to make changes. For example, the loss of a job or significant increase in one parent’s salary can make a huge impact on a child’s life. The lawyers at our firm can advise you on the law and assist you in formally requesting a modification.

Changes in Income, Costs and Child Support Modifications
Modifications are handled in the family court and determined based on a number of factors. The courts will look at certain things such as income changes and changes in costs for things such as health care costs, day care costs, education costs and other costs that are a part of your child’s life when making a decision about the modification. In addition, the courts will consider modifications to custody and visitation when making a decision about support modifications.

Without the help of an attorney, you run the risk of having other legal issues arise — which can lead to additional stress, be time consuming and very costly.
