Georgia Child Support Modification Attorney
When children are involved, a divorce or separation will rarely mark the end of a relationship. Parents generally share ongoing rights and responsibilities as established by court order, including requirements for the support of their children.
However, the child support terms established at the time of separation will not be appropriate forever. Circumstances change, and at times, support obligation must change as well.
At the family law firm of Deborah M. Lubin, P.C. in Atlanta, Georgia, we provide skilled legal representation for parents seeking to modify child support obligations. We work closely with clients to make changes that reflect changing lifestyles.
In addition to nearly 30 years of legal experience, Ms. Lubin was recently named in SuperLawyers Atlanta Magazine as one of the top family law attorneys in Georgia. Contact ustoday to schedule a consultation and learn more about our services related to support modification.
What Factors Warrant Child Support Modification?
Among other things, child support levels are based upon the financial circumstances of each parent, the needs of a child, and the amount of time a child spends with each parent. When any of these factors changes significantly, parents can seek modification of the child support levels.
For example, if a mother faces a substantial increase in living expenses, the established child support payments may be insufficient. If a father loses his job, he may be unable to meet his support obligations. In either case, the burden of proving the need for child support modification falls to the parent requesting the change.
At Deborah M. Lubin, P.C., we provide knowledgeable advice regarding the feasibility of a proposed modification and strong advocacy to protect our clients’ interests. Whether you are seeking or opposing support modification, we can effectively represent you.
