It is common for individuals and families to require the modification of child custody or child support if there is a substantial change in circumstances. The law allows for adjustments to these issues, as well as spousal support, when employment, residential and other circumstances change. If your custodial arrangement is no longer working for you, or is unfair to the child, you can explore a post-judgment modification of custody or visitation with an experienced family law lawyer. If your child support is no longer based on your current income, we will revisit such matters by fighting for your rights in court when necessary.At the New Haven, Connecticut, law firm of Verna B. Lilburn, we can help you modify your family law arrangement. We can also enforce an agreement or order if your former spouse or partner is not paying child support or living up to other obligations.
Post-Judgment Modification Attorney
Support orders can be modified if the suggested modification is based upon a substantial change in circumstances and meets the needs and the best interests of the child or children involved. Perhaps you or your spouse have changed jobs or experienced an income change. Maybe your child has special education or health needs that require additional support. We will carefully consider your situation and determine whether a modification to your order is possible and advisable.
If your former spouse is refusing to pay child support, or is violating child custody obligations — including parenting time — we can pursue the enforcement of those obligations. We will also explain what is likely to happen in the process and whether enforcement is possible under the current law.
