Child Support Modification Attorney in Roswell & Alpharetta
It is highly important that child support payments be fair to both parties involved.
If payments are too high, the parent responsible for making the payments will suffer a hardship in maintaining their own lifestyle. By the same token, payments that are too little will make life hard on the parent that is primarily responsible for raising the child.
If you feel the child support payments in your case are out of line with the income of both parties, applying for a child support modification is a smart decision.
As the years pass from the time that child support was originally determined, circumstances change. Some of those changes that could necessitate an alteration of support payments include:
- Increase or decrease in income for parent making payments
- Increase or decrease in income for parent receiving payments
- Change in cost of raising child (ex. no longer needing to pay for daycare)
- Change in living situation of one or both parents
It is important that you do not sit back and accept your child support payment situation as being set in stone.
If you are convinced that your payments are unfair and have valid reasons to support your claim, a modification could be within reach.
