Modifying Spousal Support, Child Custody Or Child Support

In order to change an existing court order, whether it is for alimony, child support or custody, you must show a substantial or material change in circumstances. This may include situations such as:

  • Parental relocation to a new state or jurisdiction
  • Unemployment or a sudden change in income
  • Remarriage
  • Changes to work or school schedules
  • Special needs of the child for extracurricular activities or health care

We can help you determine if you are eligible to change your existing court order and petition the court for a modification. Mr. Todd is experienced at handling modifications and helping families change court orders to meet their needs now and into the future.
