San Diego Child Support Increase Attorneys
While parents may be unable to resolve their own difficulties, under family law they each are to bear in mind the best interest of the child or children. This is true regardless of whether the parents have chosen to divorce or were never married in the first place. In order to ensure that the custodial parent has the financial resources necessary to provide for a child’s needs, the noncustodial parent may be ordered to pay child support, either as part of the terms or divorce agreement or an independent decision by a judge.
If you believe that an increase in child support payments is necessary due to changes of circumstance, it is highly advisable to consult with a skilled and experienced attorney. It is possible to seek adjustments to a support agreement, but this must be handled through the proper legal channels. Contact the San Diego child support increase lawyers of Fischer & Van Thiel, LLP, at 858-935-6211 to discuss your case.
How We Can Help
There are many reasons that you may need to seek an increase in the amount of child support you’re your son or daughter receives. Some of these reasons include:
- The noncustodial parent’s income has increased significantly, allowing him or her to pay more in order to ensure that your children are provided for according to financial means
- Your financial situation has changed due to a lost job, a disabling condition, high medical bills, etc.
- Your child’s circumstances have changed such that he/she needs greater support (this could include a wide variety of changes, but especially changes that increase the child’s financial needs, such as being diagnosed with a medical condition, etc.)
These are only intended to provide representative examples of instances in which seeking increased child support payments may be appropriate. We would encourage you to consult with a knowledgeable San Diego child support increase attorney regarding the nature of your own case.
