Modifications Of Court Orders

Springfield Child Support Modification Lawyers

Adjusting For Major Life Changes

Months or years after your final divorce decree has been issued and your court orders have been registered, you may find that your life changes drastically. You may lose your job, or sustain a severe injury, making it impossible to pay the amount of child support you had been paying previously. You may not have been able to find a job in the time allotted by the court order, necessitating an alimony modification to extend payments. Your kids may have very different schedules as young adults than when you made your parenting plan.

You can ask for a modification of court orders whenever there has been a substantial change in circumstances that was not reasonably foreseeable at the entry of the last court order.

At Leahy, Van Vactor, Cox & Melendy, LLP, we can help you petition for the following modifications to your court orders:

  • Parenting time
  • Child custody
  • Child support
  • Spousal support

Our Springfield child support modification attorneys will educate you on all of your available options so that you can make informed decisions. We will work with your former spouse and his or her attorney as the process moves forward.
