Understanding When It Is Time To Change A Custody Or Support Agreement
At the Law Office of David A. Kazen, we understand that life is unpredictable and circumstances can change quickly. Regarding child support and custody agreements, modifications may be necessary to ensure the agreement meets the child’s best interests. Our compassionate legal team is here to help you navigate the complex family law system and help you meet your child’s needs.
When Is It Time For A Modification?
There are several reasons why a child support or custody agreement may need to be modified. Some common reasons for modification include:
- Changes in financial circumstances – If either parent’s financial situation changes significantly, it may be necessary to modify the child support agreement.
- Changes in the child’s needs – As a child grows and develops, their needs may change. For example, they may require additional medical care or education expenses that were not accounted for in the original agreement.
- Relocation – If one parent moves to a different city or state, it may be necessary to modify the custody agreement.
- Changes in the parent’s work schedule – If a parent’s work schedule changes significantly, it may affect their ability to fulfill their responsibilities under the original agreement.
Often both parents will need to agree to a modification. However, it is essential to have skilled legal support so that you can protect your rights as a parent.
