DuPage County Child Support Change Lawyer
Wheaton Attorney for Child Support Enforcement and Modification
Child support orders are made based on the information available at the time of the divorce proceeding. While the parents, the attorneys and the judge try to estimate what may happen in the future, it is not always possible to predict what the children will need as life unfolds. That is why the state allows for post-judgment modifications to child support orders.
At Andrew Cores Family Law Group, we know that it is crucial that a child receives adequate financial support regardless of the parents' feelings about each other. We also understand that people's needs and life circumstances can change over time. When that occurs, it may become necessary to modify a child support order or agreement. Our modification and enforcement attorneys in DuPage County, Cook County, and Kendall County can assist you.
When a Change Is Needed
To modify a child support agreement, you need to prove that there has been a substantial change in circumstances for a parent or the child(ren). Requests for modification are often made based on the following changes:
- A change in the child's needs
- A change in a parent's finances
- A parent losing or obtaining a job
- A change in health of a parent or child
We represent parents who are seeking modification, as well as those who wish to defend against the modification. With our experience in family law and financial matters, our lawyers can help you present a compelling argument to the judge.
In addition, we can assist you with enforcement of court-ordered child support. If you are not receiving payments, we can ask the Court to hold the other parent in contempt of court for their failure to comply with the Court's order. Our attorneys can also assist you in defending against in a contempt proceeding.
