Why is Child Support Modifiable

We represent many people involved in the child support system. Most of our clients are considered “high wage earners.” As such they often ask “why is child support modifiable?” At first blush it may seem odd that your case is “final” but that it can be changed. That doesn’t seem to register logically. However, the reasoning, while complex, can be explained very simply. Circumstances change! Children and their needs change. The parents and their needs and abilities change. Life is not stagnate. This is why the law allows for child support to be modified upon a showing of a material and substantial change in circumstances that impacts on the best interests of the child. If you have questions about your child support obligation or the amount you receive then contact us for a detailed assessment of the circumstances. Let us help you make sense of the child support process. You can contact us at info@JusticeLegalGroup.com or by calling us at 505-880-8737.
