Child Support Modifications

When financial or health situations change, child support may also change. Child support is intended to give the children the benefit of both parents' income. Our attorney remains calm and helps you work through your emotions so that we can work toward a common-sense solution

Sometimes, a parent may need to modify their child support obligations. Perhaps an ex-spouse has a health challenge and can no longer work. Or maybe the paying spouse has lost his or her job and can no longer afford to pay child support at the court-ordered level.

Other times, there has been an increase in income that warrants a similar increase in child support. As an experienced and well-respected attorney, John Burns of Burns Law Office is well equipped to represent your interests in these cases and others.

Custody and Parenting Time Modifications

Just like child support, child custody and parenting time is modifiable with court approval. If circumstances in your life have changed and necessitate a custody or parenting time modification, Burns Law Office can help. Whether your ex-spouse has not lived up to your joint custody agreement or you need to relocate for work, we know how to help you navigate the situation effectively.
