Modification Laws for Child Custody, Support & Alimony

A Modification to a Court Order or agreement can involve a variety of legal matters. It can be a modification of custody, Child Support, or alimony. Whenever there is a problem with an agreement or Court Order and a Modification is on the table, the right legal counsel can make the difference between a favorable outcome and an unfair resolution. Whether you are seeking a Modification or need a Family Law Attorney to help fight a potential Modification, Shapiro Law Group, PC is the right choice for knowledgeable and aggressive representation. We will help you get the resolution you need. There are many reasons a Modification may be needed for Child Custody and Child Support. Some of the most common situations that lead someone to seek a Modification include:

  • Other parent wants Custody
  • Other parent loses job or relocates
  • Change in needs of the Child
  • Parent falls ill
  • Parent has drug or alcohol issues
  • Educational or health needs of Child change
  • Change in work or school schedules
  • Parent takes another job or has a new source of income

  • Spouse loses a job
