Child support modifications can be difficult to obtain. It is always in your best interest to retain a Long Island child support modification lawyer who can walk you through the process, present your side of the request, and represent you effectively. At The Pickney Law Firm, we go above and beyond to understand our clients’ goals so that we can help them find success.
Reasons to Seek Child Support Modifications
New York family courts will only grant a modification if they believe it is in the child’s best interest and if there has been a significant change of circumstances to warrant the modification.
Reasons to seek support modifications include:
- Job loss or promotion
- Relocation for work
- One parent remarries
- A parent or child incurs a serious illness or injury
Generally speaking, a child support order that is three or more years old could be subject to modification to account for income changes and inflation. If your existing order has been in place for over three years, you can request a change in the amount you pay or receive.
Making Sure Your Support Order Meets Your Needs
No one should have to overpay child support, but at the same time, it is vital that children and custodial parents receive enough financial support. At The Pickney Law Firm, we understand how to help parents on either side of the request – both payors and payees seeking modifications.
Our Long Island child support lawyers take great care to understand the nuances of each unique case and to strategize accordingly. By delivering personalized and attentive representation, we are able to position you for success.
