Skilled Support When You Need To Modify An Agreement

Change is a part of life. While it can be difficult to adjust to change, it is important to remember that change is not always bad. Change can sometimes be good, such as when it leads to a new job, new opportunities or new relationships.

There are a variety of reasons why a child custody or child support order might need to be modified. Some of the most common reasons for modifications include the following:

  • A change in employment;
  • A relocation; or
  • Another material and substantial change in circumstances.

When it is time to modify a child support or child custody order, it is essential to have skilled support to help you make the changes you need for your family. The attorneys at Lackey Law Firm, P.C., understand the complexities that come with making a change. They can help you determine your goals so you can pursue the modifications and family law support you need.

Moving Toward Change

Modifying a child custody or support arrangement can be complex, and it’s important to work with an attorney with experience in this area. The first step is typically to file a motion with the court requesting the modification. From there, there may be a hearing or a negotiation process with the other parent. The timeline for the process can vary depending on the case’s specific circumstances.
