Modifying Your Divorce Settlement

Child support awards and alimony may be modified by the court upon a showing of changed circumstances. Different factors a court will examine include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Education expenses
  • Job loss
  • Increase in income
  • Changes in custody
  • Changes in parenting time

Modifications in child support may include either an increase or decrease in the amount awarded. We will work with you to establish that your unique situation requires a modification.
