Sound Advice From A Proven Family Law Attorney
I have been representing Lake County mothers and fathers for more than 25 years. As an experienced divorce lawyer and an appointed child advocate, I never lose sight of what is most important in any issue involving child support or a parenting plan: the best interest of the child.
You can rely on me for answers to your questions and a strategy designed to resolve your issues efficiently and cost-effectively. Whenever possible, I believe it is best to seek agreement through mediation or collaboration rather than fighting in court, but I am prepared to do what is necessary to protect your parental rights and make sure your child is cared for.
When Can Child Support Be Modified?
There must be a material change in circumstances to modify support, and the burden is on the parent seeking the modification to demonstrate that such a change has occurred. Modification is often sought for reasons such as job loss or the other parent receiving a significant promotion. A change in a child’s living arrangements or medical or educational needs can also result in the need for a modification.
