Modifying Child Support Agreements
When you and your partner first signed your child support agreement, it was likely to have been highly representative of your respective financial capabilities at the time of your divorce. As time passes, these agreements tend to become outdated and less representative of one or both partner’s financial circumstances. Bearing that in mind, many people choose to modify their support agreements so that they match their situations—all while still providing for their children to best of their ability.
Common Reasons to Modify Child Support Agreements
Depending upon their exact circumstances, people choose to modify their child support agreements for any number of legitimate reasons. With that in mind, either former partner may choose to modify their support agreement to account for any new set of financial circumstances, including the following:
- Increased or decreased level of income
- Remarriage of either former partner
- New financial requirements of the child or children
Though you will surely want to provide for your child to the best of your ability, those expectations that have been placed upon you should be within reason; our attorneys may be able to help you modify your support agreement so that it is more representative of your situation.
