Decreasing Child Support
When you and your former partner first formed a child support agreement during the divorce, the arrangement was likely to have been highly representative of both your and your former spouse’s financial situations. However, as time passes and those financial circumstances change, many people find that they need to decrease their child support payments to continue to be able to reasonably manage their finances.
Reasons Our Clients Seek to Decrease Child Support Payments
Though there are any number of legitimate reasons one of our clients may seek to decrease their child support payments, our San Jose legal team have found the following circumstances to more commonly contribute to this type of modification:
- The income of the receiving spouse has increased
- The income of the paying spouse has decreased
- The child will be turning 18 years old
- The child’s needs have decreased
- The receiving spouse remarries
Whatever the particulars of your case happen to be, our San Jose legal team will do everything they can to help you adjust your child support payments so that they will be more representative of your present circumstances.
