Tampa Child Support Modification Attorney
Do You Need to Change Your Child Support Agreement?
Both parents of a child have a legal obligation to support their kid. Each parent’s ability to provide support for the child typically changes over time. In a divorce or paternity case, child support issues are resolved and set forth in an agreement or court order that states how both parents are legally bound to financially support their children. As the parent’s circumstances changes, so too might their child support contract.
Child support requirements can be modified in the state of Florida. There are several different factors that could contribute to the necessity of a modification of child support arrangement. For example, if you or the other parent has received a drastic increase or decrease in salary or if one child is no longer a supported minor, these are grounds for modification.
