Even after your divorce, paternity, child support, or child custody case is concluded, it does not mean everything is permanently set in stone. The Courts retain jurisdiction over your case as long as there is a minor, unemancipated child remaining because, often times, what is good for your children today may not be good for them in a number of years. Garner Law can help you obtain a modification of your decree so that the Judgement reflects the current situation of the parties.
There are many reasons for modification of a judgment, and Garner Law has experience in and has handled cases where:
- The earnings of one or both parents change making the current child support order unjust or inappropriate
- A job change or relocation makes the current child custody order unjust or inappropriate
- The children get older and their needs change making the current child support and child custody order not reflective of the circumstances
Whether you are seeking or opposing a modification, having an attorney can help ensure that your interests are protected and goals are achieved. At Garner Law, we will always fight to protect both your interests and those of your children.
