Common Scenarios Likely To Force A Change In Your Child Support Obligation

DiPietro Law Group, PLLC

Modifying a child support obligation can seem like an uphill battle. The party seeking modification must demonstrate a material change in circumstances that justifies the modification, and that the modification is in your child’s best interests.

However, there are a few regularly occurring situations that will necessitate modification of child support. In these situations, a Virginia court will likely find the material change needed to modify the support order.

It is important to note that if you do experience some type of financial hardship, do not wait until you fall behind on your payments to seek the advice of a family law attorney. A judge may be more inclined to grant your request for relief if you are current with your support obligation(s).

Finally, remarriage is another common event that often leads to a change in child support. This will depend on a number of factors, including whether the new spouse is wealthy (or not), whether he or she has been or has agreed to support your child, etc. Your family law attorney will know whether remarriage justifies a child support modification in your case.

If you are considering a modification of your child support obligation or the other parent wants one, you should speak with a qualified family law attorney at the DiPietro Family Law Group. Our attorneys can review the facts of your specific situation and will fight for your rights and the outcome you desire. We have decades of experience representing clients in all types of family law issues and are here to help you!
