What to Do When You Need To Modify Your Child Agreement

child support modifications in Palm Springs

Part of the divorce process involves determining custody of any children. At first, you and your former spouse may reach an agreement that works, but over time you realize you want a change. There are various steps you can take in order to alter a previous child agreement.

Demonstrate a Significant Change Has Occurred

You will likely be unable to make a change just because you feel like it. You will need to show that something has changed that warrants an alteration in the previously agreed upon child custody agreement. Some of those changes can include:

• One of the parents is moving a considerable distance away.

• One of the parents has received a large increase or decrease in income.

• A parent or child has become seriously ill or injured and needs more financial care.

There are various other circumstances that can occur, and a judge will decide whether it necessitates a modification.

Get a Court Order Agreement

Even if you and your former partner agree to these new terms yourself, they will not be enforceable unless you acquire a court order. This involves hiring an attorney and getting a judge to hear your case.

Ultimately, everyone just wants what is best for the children. Visit this website to get more information related to child support modifications in Palm Springs.
