Child support orders might need to be changed
Paying child support has to be a priority for parents. As we discussed in the previous blog post, child support agreements can be made between parents, or you can turn to the court to determine who is going to pay what. In either case, child support has to meet specific points.
If you are going through a child custody case, the child support agreement is a significant component of the order. The child has needs that can only be met if there is money available, but both parents need to have money to support themselves. If you are trying to work out a child support agreement with your child’s other parent, we can help you to learn about the options that are available for child support agreements.
As the child grows up and circumstances change, there might be a need to revisit the child support order, or the child custody order as a whole. In those cases, it might be possible to have those changed. There are specific instances in which this might be possible. If you need to seek out a modification of these orders, be sure that you take action as soon as you discover the need for the change.
It is best to take swift action on any matter about your child. Your first course of action should be finding out what you can do. From there, you can make decisions about how you are going to proceed with your case. We can help you to explore the possible options and learn how they will affect you and your child.
