Beverly Hills Child & Spousal Support Modifications Attorney

Modifying Your Agreements to Accommodate Changes in Circumstances

In general, a spousal support or child support order is meant to be finalized at the time the marriage is legally dissolved. However, in California, spousal or child support may be modified if there have been significant financial changes for either spouse since the court issued the order.

To discuss modifications of your existing child or spousal support agreements, contact Mansouri Law Offices today at (310) 878-4077 for a confidential consultation.

When Can Spousal Support Be Modified?

The decision to award spousal support is left to the sole discretion of the court, which will base the decision on a number of factors, including the duration of the marriage and the job skills of the spouse to be supported.

However, if the paying spouse experiences a significant loss in income or a medical emergency, he or she could ask the court for a downward modification of spousal support. Likewise, the spouse receiving support could also request an upward modification if his or her living or work situation changes significantly.

When Can Child Support Be Modified?

California law provides specific guidelines for the determination of child support, and child support orders are based on known factors such as each parent's income and the number of children to be supported. However, if either parent's financial situation changes, or if the paying parent becomes obligated to provide for additional children, there may be grounds for a child support modification. Again, it is crucial to seek legal assistance in these matters, whether your goal is to change a support order or prevent a change from happening.

Why It Is So Important to Involve an Attorney

Even if you and the other party are able to come to an agreement, it is crucial to have a lawyer draft and file the proper documents and obtain the judge's approval. Not having a lawyer advise and represent you throughout the process could lead to further dispute and legal costs if the other party chooses not to adhere to the new terms. Protect yourself by contacting Mansouri Law Offices so that we can help safeguard your rights now and in the future.
