Support Modification

Walnut Creek-Concord Child Support Modifications Lawyer

When there is a change in circumstance that leaves one party unable to continue with current payments, or a need for an increase in child support, you can apply for a modification of child support. You can also seek additional child support if you have lost your job, have become disabled, or for other reasons are unable to care for your children without additional support. The new amount of child support is determined either by agreement of the parties, or by state statute.

If you have recently lost your job and are seeking to decrease your child support payment, we can assist you with a child support modification. At the Law Offices of Robert A. Goodman, we are experienced in assisting clients in modifying the amount of the existing child support order.

If you become aware that your former spouse has had a increase in pay or other income, we will assist you in getting your child support amount modified upward appropriately.

Contact a child support modifications attorney today for more information on how to reduce your payments or increase the amount of child support paid to you. Child support modifications are generally not retroactive; therefore you must act immediately to initiate modifications.

Our child support attorney can assist you with any of the following:

Non-payment of child support is a serious offense. If you find yourself unable to meet your child support obligations, file for a modification as soon as possible; waiting can result in fines and criminal charges against you if you miss your child support payments. A modification of your child support obligation can be ordered by the court if you are unable to pay your current obligation due to job loss, decrease in income, disability, or other unforeseen circumstance. It is important to begin the process of modifying your support order right away to avoid unnecessary penalties.
