Time To Modify Your Child Support

Perhaps you have found a new job or were fired from an old one. It all happened so fast and you didn’t have time to think about how this new chapter in your life can affect your child support obligations. You can ask the court to modify your child support order but there needs to be a compelling reason otherwise you may not qualify. Ask an Aventura child support modification lawyer to help you find out what your chances are of requesting a new child support agreement.

Change of circumstances

Whether you are seeking to increase or decrease your child support obligations, it’s important that a change in circumstances has occurred. It all depends on your circumstances and details of your case. Nevertheless, some circumstances are commonly considered a good basis for a modification:

  • The child’s medical expenses
  • Any illness or disability you may have
  • You are earning less or more
  • The child is now living with you

Parental income

This is one of the most important factors when determining child support. A change in earnings is always a good reason to modify the child support arrangement. However, the amount of income must be significant in order for the court to adjust your child support payments to your current earnings.

Take your agreement to court

If you have a good reason for your child support modification, it’s time to talk to your ex-spouse. Perhaps you both can agree on a convenient amount. The agreement needs to be in writing and it needs to be taken to court. The court will approve a child support agreement as long as it meets the child’s best interests. An official order always comes in handy when a parent fails to meet his or her child support obligations.

Keep records

Some dads providing child support for their children forget to keep records because they are too busy at work. Unfortunately some moms take advantage of this forgetfulness and amy claim in court she didn’t receive any payments. Whether you provide your child support in cash, check or money order, make sure you make a copy of everything. It can be used as evidence if this ever happens to you. But what happens if you forgot to keep these records? Sometimes even keeping these records is not enough. You may need an Aventura child support modification lawyer who argues your case in court.
