Modifications

When a court orders child support or spousal support, the amount awarded may be sufficient to meet the needs of the child. However, over time things can change. Expenses can increase and income may increase or decrease for either party, making a modification of the original agreement necessary.

A court order may need to be modified when:

  • The income of the paying parent increases by 10% or more
  • The income of the custodial parent decreases by 10% or more
  • The custodial parent involuntarily loses a job
  • There is a significant increase in expenses, such as medical expenses, educational expenses, or other age-related expenses

When there is a change, it is important to get an order from the court that specifies the new amount to be paid. Some people may feel that because they entered into an agreement for a new amount willingly and amicably, that an order from the court is not needed. However, relationships can deteriorate or disagreements in the future can lead to one party reneging on the agreement. For this reason, it is always a good idea to have it in writing.

Enforcement of an Existing Agreement

Are you having trouble holding a former spouse to an agreement? Unfortunately, ex-spouses are not always willing to live up to the commitments of a settlement agreement. If you are experiencing a problem collecting child support or spousal support, sticking to a visitation schedule, or with another aspect of your divorce, visitation, or custody agreement, you should seek the advice of our modifications and enforcements attorneys in Ellis County.

Whether you need a modification to an agreement or help ensuring that an existing agreement is enforced, call (972) 843-7456 to get the help you need.
