We Can Help You Modify Custody And Support Agreements

Child custody is based on what is in the best interest of the child, whether it is an initial determination or a modification of existing orders. You may be seeking a relocation or simply more parenting time with your child. We can make your case for or against the modification with your children's best interests in mind.

To modify child support orders, you must prove that the circumstances of a parent or child have changed significantly. Similarly, modification of spousal support orders may be granted if one party's financial situation changes significantly enough to merit a decrease or increase in payments. Requests for spousal and child support modification are often made because of:

  • A party losing a job or suffering a financial loss
  • A party getting a higher-paying job
  • A change in the health of one parent or child
  • A change in a child's needs

Please speak with us to learn how we may assist you with modifications or enforcement of existing orders.
