Common Reasons for Modifications in San Diego
There are a number of reasons why a person may seek a post judgment modification in San Diego, and if you or someone you love is experiencing a change in any of the following circumstances, you should speak with an attorney at our firm:
- Your child is getting older, and consequently their financial needs are increasing, making it necessary to obtain more child support.
- Your child has moved in with you, the “non-custodial parent,” making it necessary for you to cease paying child support to the other parent.
- You or the other parent has lost a job or is unable to work due to illness or medical complications, calling for a decrease in child support or spousal support payments.
- You or the other parent has experienced a promotion or increase in salary, making it necessary to amend the amount of child support or alimony.
- One parent moves out of state, making it necessary to change the terms of a custody agreement or visitation agreement.
