Modifications of Custody and Child Support

Modification of Child Custody & Support

Ready to Fight for Fair Child Custody and Support Agreements

Child custody and support decisions are based on the needs and best interests of the child or children involved, as well as the financial and other circumstances of each parent. However, these situations do not remain static. Over the years, income and living situations may change.

As children grow up they too may have different needs, necessitating a change in:

  • Child support
  • Child custody
  • Arrangements for parenting time

Modifications to child custody or support obligations are possible when there has been a substantial change to the needs of the child or the income of one or both parents. The specific circumstances of each case, examined in light of applicable case law, govern when a change is appropriate. Our family lawyers at Warner Bates has been handling these types of cases for over 40 years. We would be happy to answer your questions and to provide counsel and support as you seek a modification.

Am I Qualified to Seek a Child Custody / Support Modification?

Because the laws have evolved over the years, requesting a review and modification to address changes in income will not benefit the parent seeking relief in many cases. If you are considering action to request a modification, it is important to discuss the details of your situation with an experienced Atlanta child custody attorney in order to assess whether a modification is justified-and also whether it is likely to be beneficial.
