Child Support

Following a divorce, a person’s income often changes as they transition into the work-force or they are forced to cut back or alter their work schedule because of the demands of leading a one-parent household. Unlike other areas of the divorce agreement, the Court is more willing to open up the issue of child support for modification, where the earning abilities of the parties have changed.

In such instances, it is incumbent on the parties to seek a modification in child support amounts as soon as practicable, so as to reflect the new financial realities.
