Modification to Child Support

Lawrenceville Divorce Attorney Serving Gwinnett County

A child support arrangement between two parents can be modified if there is a change in income or financial status for either parent, or if there is a change in the child's needs. For example, if the financial needs of the child dramatically increase, or if the noncustodial parent receives a pay raise or a promotion, it may be necessary to increase the amount of child support to the custodial parent. Conversely, if the child graduates high school, or if the noncustodial parent experiences the loss of a job or a reduction in pay, it may be necessary to decrease the amount of support going to the custodial parent. A Lawrenceville divorce attorney can provide you with help if you are seeking a modification to your child support arrangement, or if you are seeking to block a request for modification from the other parent.

The Law Office of Robert L. Booker provides through and compassionate legal help in divorce cases of all types, including those that involve child support disputes or requests for modification. If you are trying to settle a matter related to child support modification, our firm will provide you with the assistance and resources you need to improve your chances of a beneficial case outcome.

Filing for Child Support Modification

Once you have received a child support order from a family court, you can seek a modification at any point thereafter. However, once you have successfully obtained an order for modification, you cannot file for another modification for two years from the date of the first order. The only exceptions to this rule include an involuntary loss of income, or a greater or lesser amount of visitation being taken by the noncustodial parent than what has been established in a court order.
