Various circumstances may result in the need for modifications of an original dissolution of marriage judgment, paternity judgment or parenting plan. Life changes, such as job loss, a decrease in income, or retirement may cause the inability to pay the original amount of alimony or child support payments. In other cases, the parents may receive an increase in income and may be able to pay more in providing for their child or the child’s needs increase.
If you have experienced a life change and are no longer able to make the court-ordered support payments, then it is important to take legal action quickly so that the support does not continue to accrue at the original rate. A modification may occur even if the loss in income is temporary.
Similarly modifications may be needed in the case of time-sharing or parenting plans. People need to move or have changes in work schedules and the original judgment may not remain in the best interest of the children.
