A Modification Can Often Be Useful
Well-crafted custody and support agreements try to anticipate what the child will need in the future. However, the lives of the parents or children can change unexpectedly, making it difficult to follow the original arrangement. It is also not unusual for individuals to need modifications to spousal support terms.
Bowler and Bowler can provide knowledgeable custody and support representation to parents in the Redlands area. The firm offers representation for the initial determination or modification of existing orders.
When Is A Modification Appropriate?
Life can change abruptly. When an individual’s financial or living situation suddenly shifts, it can be necessary to take a close look at their support and custody agreement. Some instances where a modification could prove helpful include:
- Loss of employment: Should you lose your job, it may be wise to request a temporary modification to your child or spousal support agreement.
- A medical emergency: If you are suddenly hospitalized for an extended period of time and are unable to work, existing custody and support arrangements may become impractical.
- A second marriage: If a spouse remarries, they may no longer require support payments.
- Permanent disability: A permanent disability can severely inhibit your earning potential, which could require a support modification.
Whether your needs concern alimony or child custody and support, a seasoned family law attorney can help you explore your options before determining the most optimal path forward.
