The priority of both parents and the court is the well-being of your child or children. Any move to modify child support agreements will be to benefit the children.
Courts recognize that changing a child’s routine can be a difficult adjustment for a child to make. The utmost care must be taken when considering a child’s changing best interests.
Some common grounds for seeking a modification can include:
- Parental relocation
- Domestic violence or child abuse
- Drug or alcohol abuse by a parent
- A parent’s new work schedule
- A medical emergency affecting a parent’s ability to provide care
