Modification of Child Support
Modification of Child Support for existing Court Orders is a change to your prior support or visitation agreement may be necessary if you have a substantial change in employment or living arrangement circumstances. You may need an increase or decrease in your child support or alimony because of the loss of a job or a new job. A parent may need to modify their parenting time schedule to fit a growing child’s requirements.
When a change in circumstance justifies an increase or decrease in child support or a change in your visitation schedule, our lawyers can help you file a court order modification. Contact Jeanne M. Bourque, a qualified Louisiana Attorney to set up a free initial consultation. We also help parents who wish to contest modifications to court orders.
As an experienced divorce lawyer, Jeanne M. Bourque is dedicated to helping people who must make changes to their initial child custody and visitation arrangements or child support and alimony court orders. We help custodial parents, noncustodial parents and parents paying or receiving child support or alimony.
In order to grant a modification of child support, custody, alimony or visitation, the courts will require proof of significantly or materially changed circumstances. Changes in circumstances can include:
A promotion or job loss of one parent
A significant increase or decrease in income
The birth of or emancipation of another child
A permanent physical injury
Remarriage of a parent
We attempt to negotiate a quick settlement between parties since a speedy resolution can often save our clients significant time, money and stress. We are proud of our high rate of client loyalty and client satisfaction, and we strive to help each of our clients understand the process and achieve the modification that they need.
