Child Support Modification

A Child support modification may be needed when the financial circumstances of a parent may change. Each parent may appeal a child support order if there is a change in their conditions like an increase or decrease in the incomes by either parent, or a change in the amount of time the child spends with each parent.

There are many reasons why a child support order may be changes. Should you need to modify your child support payments, The Family Law Guru can prepare your petition and help properly document your changed financial or health condition.

Modification of Spousal Support Orders

Spousal Support in California is considered final at the time of the dissolution of the marriage or divorce. California family law does allow for changes to spousal support when changes occur to the original facts used to determine that support payments happen. Modifications are typically based on changes in income and, like child support changes, either spouse can request a modification to a spousal support order. Whether you are the spouse making support payments (obligor spouse) or the spouse receiving payments (the recipient spouse), Vanessa Gnekow will assist you in obtaining a modification in line with your current financial circumstances.

Modification of Custody and Visitation Orders

Custody and visitation orders are based on conditions at the point of the divorce. The goal of these orders are to establish a schedule that is in the best interests of the children, while at the same time giving both parents the appropriate level of parental access. However, situations can change over time, and if those changes are substantial, this could be grounds to modify custody or visitation orders. The more common situation that may result in modification of custody is when one parent moves or relocates.
