Modifications

When financial circumstances change, a modification can either increase or decrease child support. Situations where this typically happens include:

  • One of the former spouses begins to make more or less money.
  • One of the ex-spouses loses his or her job.
  • A child turns 18.
  • One of the former spouses becomes disabled.
  • A child has emancipated before the age of 18.

Even when these situations occur, a modification will not occur automatically. You must still file for a modification with the court, and have the approval of a judge before a modification goes into effect.

Relocation

Relocation of a child can be exceptionally emotional. Because of this, you need to have an experienced attorney by your side who can serve as the voice of reason and who will work hard to help you achieve your goals. Situations involving relocation typically occur in situations involving:

  • A parent or his/her new spouse gets a job in a different city.
  • A move is necessary to improve or ensure quality of life (such as moving to an area with better schools).
  • A move is required because of one spouse's involvement in the military.

A judge must determine if relocation is in the best interest of the children. The judge will consider things such as contact with the community, friends in the area, quality of education, and many other factors.
