Making Changes to Child Support

Last Updated : April 2, 2024

When child support agreements are signed at the time of divorce, they are typically representative of each parent’s financial circumstances at the time. However, as time passes the financial circumstances of both parents is more than likely to change. With that in mind, child support agreements often need to be modified in order to represent each parent’s new financial circumstances to best ensure that their child or children are properly cared for. While you do not necessarily need a lawyer to help you do this, an experienced family lawyer will be able to help you through what can otherwise be an exceedingly complicated situation.

Child Support Actions

Though child support agreements are intended to best provide for the child, they should remain fair to both parents. As such, it is advisable that you speak with a family lawyer before taking any of the following actions:

  • Modification of a support agreement
  • Enforcing existing support agreements
