Child Support Variations
Moving forward with the right family law firm can help you ensure that your children get the support that they need and are entitled to.
Child support can be challenged and even adjusted retroactively in some cases. Either party has the right to attempt renegotiation and bring a Motion to Change child support to the court.
During a Motion to Change (also known as Motion to Vary) child support, one of the parties requests the variation of child support payments to more accurately reflect the current situation.
Child support (and any subsequent changes to it) can often be an emotionally charged topic, as both parents can have wildly differing views of what’s fair and acceptable. Our family law firm can help you reach a settlement guaranteeing that your children are looked after financially.
If your former spouse’s financial standing has changed for any reason, you may have questions about your entitlement to an increase in child support. The rate you received is tied to their earnings, so child support variations are easily doable. If your former spouse isn’t willing to cooperate, however, you will need the help of an experienced family lawyer.
The first step is sitting down with us to discuss all the details of your current child support arrangement and any changes to your situation that would require a child support variation.
