Child Support Modifications
Need to modify a court order for child support? Call my firm.
When a family is separated by divorce, one parent may end up paying child support to the other parent in order to provide financial security for their children. If you are paying child support to your former spouse and you have had a significant change in circumstances, you may need to file a child support modification to adjust the agreement to reflect these circumstances. Or, conversely, if you are a parent who is receiving support from an ex-spouse and something occurs that means you need more financial help for your children, a modification can be sought through the court.
As a Jacksonville child support lawyer, I have extensive knowledge and experience in all matters related to child support, including modifications of an existing court order. I know what the court will accept, and can advise you if you are hoping to make a change to a child support order. Do not fail to adhere to an existing order, or you could face legal repercussions - do it through the court system.
