Child Support Modification

Your support payment obligation does not necessarily have to be set strictly according to the guidelines. You can agree on a different amount so long as the court approves it. You do have to be aware of what the guidelines state, your right to receive this amount, were not forced into the agreement, are not on public assistance and agree that the amount is in the best interests of the children. If you want a change in the amount ordered at some future time, let us assess if you can show a significant change in circumstances such as in your employment status that would allow a modification.
