Child and Spousal Support Modification
If you have recently endured the strenuous and costly process of going through a divorce, you are probably not alone in wishing you never had to readdress the situation again in your life. However, as complex (or sometimes easy) as the process may have been, no one is exempt from further complications down the road. Post-divorce support attorneys help people after the ink has dried from their divorce when modifications need to be made in regards to child support or spousal support.
Child support modification is a very important process that helps protect, above all else, the best interests of a child or children involved. When child support is initially set by the court, payments are typically to be made by the noncustodial parent in order to help provide for the needs of the child. The initial payment amount is up for modification depending on various circumstances, for which the parent who is requesting the modification will have to provide evidence. Any modifications must be made through the court, since the initial agreement is settled by the court. This is the case even if both parents agree to the child support modification. It will be in your and your child’s best interest to enlist the guidance of a post-divorce support attorney when facing these types of circumstances.
We can also help with spousal support modifications as well. As with child support modifications, there are several requirements needed before proceeding with this type of modification, including evidence that there has been a significant alteration in the living standards that make a modification necessary. Also, these will have to be officiated in court, so again, enlisting the help of a post-divorce support attorney will be in your best interest.
