Is Your Child Support Agreement Working?
Often going hand in hand with child custody, child support is an often fought issue. Retaining the resources to provide for your children is vital. Your attorney should advocate for the right amount of support and help you overcome any obstacles that make this process harder.
Money matters in divorce and family law are always difficult; we understand that. At The Law Office of Christine Aung PLLC, we also understand much about accounting and other money matters. It gives us insight into the fight for a fair amount of support under Florida’s law. We help clients from Deltona and the surrounding area with all their support matters, especially when the original agreement no longer makes sense.
Are Support Levels Set In Stone?
No, they are not. As children grow older, their needs change. It is common for court-ordered child support to be modified throughout the child’s minor years (0-18 years). Child support modifications, or parenting plans, can primarily affect who the child lives with, the amount of child support to be paid by each parent, and how often the child gets to see each parent.
When modifying parenting plans and court orders are currently in place, it is essential to base modifications on the child’s needs and keep their best interest at the forefront of all decision-making.
Here are some examples of reasons that parents would seek modifications of court orders:
- One or both of the parents experiences employment changes
- Children’s school or school schedule changes
- A current parenting plan negatively impacts children
- One or both of the parents remarry
- Child requires different needs as they grow older
Child support may grow and shrink over time, but the best thing you can do is be mindful of your situation. If you pay support, and it’s getting harder and harder, it may be time to pursue a modification.
