Child Custody Modification • Relocation • Changes in Financial Circumstances
We urge clients to bring forward any change in financial circumstances that might qualify for a change in support or custody orders. Being laid off, having your former spouse get a better job, or learning that her new partner is abusive, are all matters that should be looked at with an eye to submitting a modification motion.
If your former spouse relocates to another state, resulting in increased travel costs for child visitation, it may be cause for a modification of support. For any change in circumstances that affects support, custody, or visitation, contact us at The Law Office of Victor J. Cavallo in Stamford.
Contempt and Enforcement of Support
We help men charged with contempt for failing to pay child support. Such charges are often a result of a significant change in the payor’s circumstances, caused by serious illness or losing a job. If you have fallen behind in support because of a changing financial situation, we can help by petitioning the court for modification of support orders.
Even if there’s a working informal agreement to the change, it is important to have such changes formally acknowledged by the court. Informal consent to lower support payments does not legally modify the support obligation. The paying parent can always be hauled into court at any time for enforcement and collection of delinquencies. Let our office pursue a motion for child support modification on your behalf to reflect the change in your circumstances.
