Modifications to Child Support

Changing Child Support Payments

The process of going through a divorce is exhausting. Finally being able to have the complex issues of asset division, legal custody, child support and other matters settled can come as a relief, allowing you to finally move on with your life. As we all know, however, life can change in the blink of an eye.

Often, parents need to modify child support after a change in circumstances. For example, the recent difficulties in the global economy have been felt here in Texas resulting in many job losses.

Most divorced parents who are either paying or receiving child support are unaware about what circumstances might subject them to a modification to the terms of child support. Some of the issues are:

  • A significant change in income or finances of either parent
  • Health insurance matters
  • Emancipation of a child

There has to be a significant change for the court to order a modification of child support. When you are seeking a modification to your current child support agreement, the most important first step is to contact a Galveston County divorce lawyer.

My firm has been helping clients seek fair child support agreements for 30 years. I appreciate that circumstances change and may be able to assist you in seeking a modified child support agreement that reflects your change in circumstances.
