Child Support Modification
Family Law

The Top Child Custody Lawyer In Ellis, Johnson, & Tarrant County

Do you need help enforcing a child support agreement? Is the amount of child support awarded insufficient, due to changing income or expenses? At McCarty-Larson, PLLC, we help families with modification and enforcement of existing court orders. Let an attorney experienced with child support enforcement, and modification from our firm evaluate your situation and recommend the best course of action.

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:

  • NThe income of the paying parent increases by 10% or more
  • NThe income of the custodial parent decreases by 10% or more
  • NThe custodial parent involuntarily loses a job
  • NThere 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 Alimony Payments

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

Contact us to set up your initial child support enforcement and modifications consultation. It is important to use a competent attorney to navigate the process. Feel free to use the form to request a free consultation or call our office during regular business hours.
