Custody And Support Agreements Are Not Set In Stone
A divorce decree may appear final – and it is – but families continue to change and grow over time, even after a divorce. Whatever the circumstances and whichever side of a proposed support or custody modification you are on, you should consult with a family law attorney. Your lawyer should be prepared to clearly explain your opportunities and obligations according to the law and how to present a compelling case in favor of your position.
Contact attorney Kent Balduchi at Balduchi Law Office, PC, in Des Moines for knowledgeable and compassionate advice and assistance having to do with any aspect of child custody, child support or spousal support modifications.
Common Reasons For Modifications
Child custody and child support orders that made sense at the time of a divorce may become outdated because:
- Either or both parents have had a significant increase or decrease in income.
- The parent with primary custody has proposed a move-away; this parent wants or needs to move to another geographical area with revised child custody arrangements.
Perhaps you believe there are good reasons to lower child support payments that you make each month. Spousal support is also sometimes subject to change, such as when the recipient spouse remarries.
You Can Object To Proposed Modifications
Contact an attorney to discuss any objections you have to the other party’s request for a modification and decide whether it is cost-effective to contest a change with which you disagree. Conversely, if you are the one proposing a modification in custody or support, talk over the most likely to succeed methods of achieving your goals with an understanding lawyer.
