What Factors Are Involved In Modification Orders?
When a parent is seeking a modification to an existing child custody agreement, the child’s best interests are considered first and foremost. How will the child benefit from the change? Will there be any negative effects on the child? Typically, custody modifications are the result of remarriage or relocation. If a parent wants to move away with a child, he or she must first obtain permission from the court through a child removal action.
Changes to child support and maintenance orders are almost always the result of a change in income of one party. Often, the recipient of child support or maintenance seeks an increase in the support amount following a substantial increase in the payer’s income.
Our attorneys have represented thousands of family law clients, perhaps more than any other law firm in Kane County, and we are ready to assist you.
