HARTFORD CHILD SUPPORT MODIFICATION LAWYER
Guidance Through Child Custody, Visitation and Support Modifications
Things change in people’s lives following divorce or separation and there are many reasons to come back to court — whether your children’s needs or schedules have changed as they’ve grown older, your financial situation has significantly changed or you wish to relocate with your children. We can help you through the legal steps in requesting or responding to a request for a post-judgment modification.
Seeking Fair Resolution to Modification Disputes
When a parent requests a modification of a court order, it doesn’t necessarily mean that either party is doing anything wrong. It simply means that something has changed since the time of the original family court order and now that order doesn’t fit the needs of the children and/or parents. A child custody, visitation or child support modification may be necessary due to a number of different reasons, such as:
- One parent’s income has significantly increased or decreased
- Extracurricular activities now impact visitation/parental access
- Additional uncovered medical expenses are not accounted for in child support calculations
- Day care expenses are unnecessary as the child has grown, impacting child support matters
- One parent’s modified work schedule impacts the existing parenting schedule
- A parent questions the child’s safety due to concerns of abuse or neglect
- One parent wants to relocate with the child out of state
