When divorces and other family law agreements are settled, usually the parties try and create agreements that will work for a very long time. When circumstances change and the current agreement is no longer appropriate, a modification may be in order.
Many parents believe they are paying too much child support and many believe they are not receiving enough. The reality is that even the most accurately set child support levels can become out of step with the financial situations of a child’s parents over time. New jobs, promotions, raises and layoffs can all impact how child support levels should be set and the old levels may no longer reflect the current reality.
We can help you pursue a modification as well as object to one for you. We assist parties with petitions and objections.
People often have strong feelings about child custody and visitation. One parent may strongly disagree with the other parent’s approach to raising the child, for example. One parent may also fail to follow the visitation schedule. Whatever the reason that someone wants to pursue a modification to the current child custody agreement, we can help. We can also assist with objecting to any petition for a modification.
