Modification of Child Support

During your divorce, the court will make a decision regarding child support. While the court will use its best judgment of your current situation to make the decision, no one can expect that your situation will remain the same forever. As life changes, your court orders may have to be changed with it. If this is the case, contact an Anaheim family attorney immediately to discuss a modification of child support.

According to California law, child support is modifiable at any time, as the court agrees that it is necessary. There are many situations that could fit such a bill. For instance, if you have recently lost your job or taken a significant salary cut, you may find it impossible to keep up with your existing child support payment schedule—in this case, you may need to work out an adjustment at a lower rate. If your custody situation changes to where your children spend more time with you, the amount of child support you pay to your spouse should also change to reflect that. Once your children turn 18 or become self sufficient, it may be time to look into ceasing child support altogether. Whatever your unique situation is, a good Anaheim family lawyer can advise you of your rights and how to proceed.
