Child Support Modification Lawyer in Merrifield VA
A divorce judgment will include a final order detailing child support, spousal support, child custody and visitation after the case is completed. This decision will remain in place until one of the parties requests an alteration to the order, at which time a new order is created.
People's requirements and financial situations change over time - If a parent can demonstrate that circumstances have changed materially since the original order was issued, the court may modify it.
A material change in circumstances typically occurs when there is a significant change in the payor's or recipient's income, the number of children for whom support is being paid, the cost of child care or health insurance, or the custody arrangement. Child support may also be modified to reflect changes in state law.
