A Parent’s Financial Obligation to Child
Child Support Modification
A parent may request a modification of an award, regardless of the length of time since the award was established, when there has been a substantial change in either parents’ income and financial status or the needs of the child.
Modifications may also be available based upon changes in custody and the involuntary loss of parent’s employment.
Alford & Burkhart LLC assist parents in determining if a modification action is a viable or proper action. In a modification action, the financial figures on the parties’ Child Support Worksheets must be reviewed and updated, which takes experience and familiarity with how the Worksheets work. When a modification action is filed, it is important that the reported income of the parents is verified through investigation and that investigation should be done by experienced family law attorneys such as those at Alford & Burkhart LLC. Modification can be an intricate proceeding but Alford & Burkhart LLC offer their clients legal guidance and advice to accomplish their goals from these proceedings.
