Changes to parental responsibility
Following a divorce or paternity action, the judgments put into place regarding child parental responsibility, child support and spousal maintenance are not intended to be permanent. They can be changed, but only if changes are necessary.
Several years ago, Illinois adopted new terms for parental responsibility and parenting time. Modification of parental responsibility arrangements may be necessary.
That's why it's critical that you have a knowledgeable divorce lawyer on your side who knows the law and knows how to get results. Our attorneys know the law because we routinely handle such complicated cases throughout southern Illinois. There's no substitute for experience.
Changes to parental responsibility and spousal maintenance
Child support modifications can be made only in certain circumstances. Such circumstances include:
- One parent has lost his or her job or suffered a substantial pay cut, child support or maintenance modification may be available.
- One parent has been granted a promotion and a pay increase, modification may be possible.
- Child's medical condition requires additional support.
- One spouse remarries.
Whatever the circumstances, we can help you determine if making a modification is an option and which approach makes the most sense based on your circumstances.
