Little Rock Child Support Modification Lawyer
Seeking to Modify a Divorce Decree or Order
When a divorce is finalized, the orders that are entered reflect the circumstances that exist at that time. If circumstances should change, however, it may be appropriate for the orders to be revisited and adjusted to more closely reflect the current situation. This process is referred to as a modification.
There are specific criteria that need to be met in order for a modification to be approved, and these matters can become quite complex. An experienced Little Rock child support modification attorney can review your case and help you understand your legal options. At The Wright Law Firm, I represent spouses on both sides of post-divorce modification issues.
Arkansas Custody Modification Attorney
Modifications can be requested for a number of different orders, including the following:
Child custody: Child custody modifications can be requested based on a material change in circumstances as they affect the child. Any change in orders will be made to support the child’s best interests. I have handled cases involving parental relocation or move away, child endangerment issues and many others.
Child support: Child support modifications can be requested when there is an increase in income of 20 percent or $100 per month for the noncustodial parent. If the noncustodial parent loses income, he or she can request that support be modified accordingly. Even if the noncustodial parent becomes unemployed, the court can still order a minimum monthly amount to be paid.
