Post-divorce child support modifications can be granted due to a substantial and material change in circumstances. Examples of a change of circumstances include job loss, an increase in benefits, an increase or decrease in salary or health issues. If you and your ex have several children together and one child turns eighteen and graduates high school, then the total payment amount should be altered to reflect that as well.
You may wish to modify the parenting plan because you believe that it is in your child's best interest to change the primary residential parent, change the day-to-day schedule, or one parent relocates. Changes such as these can be difficult to accomplish because the court must determine if the changes are substantial and material and in your child's best interests while maximizing parenting time for both parties. It is important to receive assistance from an experienced attorney to ensure the best possible results in court.

If your ex is not paying their child support or spousal support order then we can work to garnish payments.
