Colleyville Decreasing Child Support Lawyers

Shifts in the economy and life’s unexpected turns can sometimes make an adjustment of child support payments necessary. Although a custodial and non-custodial parent may agree on a decrease in child support payments, official decreases in child support must be made through the court system. If you are in need of a decrease in child support payments or anticipate a need for a decrease, it is important that you begin taking steps toward having those payments reduced through the legal process before you are unable to meet the financial obligations of current payments.

Our Colleyville decreasing child support lawyers of Alexander & Associates have years of experience representing the rights of clients in child support cases. If you are in need of a decrease in child support payments, contact us today at 817-756-4040 to discuss what an attorney can do to help you.

Causes for Decreasing Child Support

There are many reasons why someone may need a decrease in child support payments. Some of the most common reasons people are given a decrease in payments include:

  • The custodial parent has a significant increase of income
  • The non-custodial parent has a decrease in income or loss of income
  • The child or children require less financial support (such as reduced medical costs due to a recovery from an illness)
  • A change in custody that results in more of the parent’s income being spent directly on the child or children

In order for a child support agreement to be amended or decreased, a person will have to show proof that there is a definite need for smaller payments to be made, which is something an attorney can help prepare.
