Modification of Child Support
Child support modification overview
Financial support of a child’s changing needs and requirements is a parental responsibility that should be borne by both spouses. A child’s well-being and safety is the most important aspect of child support – the purpose of paying any amount of money to your ex-spouse is to ensure that your child is comfortable and stable. A child support agreement is part of the original divorce proceeding that you and your ex-spouse went through. However, sometimes financial circumstances change and the child support has to be legally modified.
Modifying your child support
If one or both parents have experienced a significant change in income, that could be grounds to change the amount of financial support that one is paying to the other. A Nevada child support modification attorney can help you determine whether a change in the pay schedule is possible or necessary. If the financial circumstance change would result in a child support amount that is a certain percentage more or less than the original agreement, the court could see fit to change the amount of child support if a request is filed by either parent.
