Manhattan Beach Modifications to Child Support Agreements
One of the most complicated parts of a divorce is likely to be the process of reaching a child support agreement. When a court determines the amount that the non-custodial parent is required to pay every month in child support, he or she considers many different factors so the child or children get enough financial support to cover education, medical, and other needs. These decisions are made based upon the facts present at the time of the divorce, but these circumstances may change with the passage of time.
If you believe that a change in your circumstances or those of your former spouse might warrant an adjustment to the current arrangements, it is important to speak with a Manhattan Beach custody lawyer.
