Many people believe that the end of the divorce process signifies the end of their relationship. While this holds true to a certain degree, it’s not typically the case if you have a child with your ex-spouse.
During your divorce, many key decisions were made in regard to custody and child support. At some point, you may realize that these details require modification.
There are many things that can lead to a child custody modification, including anything that results in a substantial change of circumstances. This could include something as simple as one parent relocating out of state for a new employment opportunity.
Child support can also be modified. Once again, this typically happens if the person paying the support is faced with a change of circumstances that makes it difficult for him or her to make the same payment in the future. Examples include a job loss or serious illness.
At our law firm, we know that there are times when people want to seek either a child support or child custody modification. While this sounds simple on the surface, it’s anything but that once the case makes its way to the courtroom.
If you have any reason to believe that a child custody or child support modification would be in the best interest of you and/or your child, you should move the process forward as quickly as possible.
There are many key steps to take, all of which are important if you hope to sway the court in your favor. A modification is nothing to take lightly, but there are times when it’s necessary.
