Child Custody, Child Support And Spousal Support Modifications
Simply modifying a divorce judgment or order is not all that simple. You must be able to prove substantial change of circumstance — a change so significant that you are entirely unable to fulfill the terms of the original agreement or order.
Modifying Child Support Or Spousal Support
To be able to modify a child support or spousal support order, you must be able to produce evidence of a substantial change of income or ability to pay, which may result from:
- Job loss
- Salary reduction
- Business loss
- Asset loss
- Severe medical condition
- Serious accident that prevents you from working
The recipient of support payments may also seek modification of orders if it can be shown that the spouse making support payments did not disclose certain assets or income when the initial judgment was made.
Modifications, if necessary, will be made in your child’s best interests. Without attorney representation, your best interests may not be adequately protected, and the proper argument may not be made for your child’s best interests.
