Modifications of child custody and support are sometimes possible
As we discussed in our previous blog post, child support is a very important factor for children who have parents that don’t live together. This financial support is meant to help provide for the child’s needs. When the child support order is issued, it is based on the current information regarding the child, as well as the parents’ financial statuses. There might come a time down the road when the child support order needs to be modified.
We know that the thought of having to head back to court for a child support modification might not be something that you really want to do. We can help you to learn about the process so that you know what to expect. When you know what to expect, you might feel more comfortable with the process. This might help to reduce the stress you feel.
When we work on a child support modification petition, we look into the situation to determine if your case meets the criteria for a modification. While we are going through this, we can also work to determine if there is a need to also file a child custody modification petition. If there is, we will gather what we need to handle that in conjunction with the child support modification petition.
We understand that anything that has to do with your children can be emotionally draining. We can’t take away the emotional aspects of your case, but we can help you to prepare for the legal aspects of your case so that you are ready when your case is heard.
