Changing circumstances in your life and the life of your child or children may warrant a revision of your divorce decree. The loss of a job, a change in health and the high school graduation of your child are events that could influence the amount of support you are contributing or receiving.

 

We will assist you in identifying those unexpected or anticipated changes that could result in a request to modify your existing child support or spousal orders.

The court considers modifications by examining certain factors in each case:

 

Child support modifications

 

  • Change in custody – (spending significantly more or less time with children)

  • Change in financial obligations

  • Change in income of custodial or noncustodial parent

  • Medical change – illness, debilitating injury

 

Spousal support modifications

 

  • Change in financial obligations

  • Change in health – illness, disability, debilitating injury

  • Change in income

  • Employment change – job loss, or a new job

  • Supportive relationship – a remarriage, or living with a boyfriend/girlfriend
