Child Support Modification Attorneys in Long Island

My Situation Has Changed. Can I Adjust My Child Support Order?

At times, it will be necessary to modify the terms of your child support agreement. While the agreement may have been right at the time of your divorce or separation agreement, your income situation may have changed, your child’s needs may have become different and your living situation may have changed.

It is important to consult a Long Island child support modification lawyer immediately if you believe that you need to modify the terms of your child support agreement. Rather than trying to come to an agreement with your spouse without the help of a lawyer or without going through the court, it is essential that you do this with an attorney’s assistance. Making sure this new agreement is entirely valid will help avoid any conflict in the future.
