Seattle Modifications Attorneys
Family Lawyers Handing Child Support, Child Custody & Spousal Support Modifications
In this day and age, nothing is constant, especially when it comes to finances. After a divorce has already been settled, sometime issues will arise that will make it absolutely necessary to go back and modify the original arrangement. Child support and spousal support are determined based upon financial figures of the spouses, and sometimes extenuating circumstances can affect a person’s ability to pay. Loss of employment, illness, family emergencies and other issues can affect an individual’s income, making it difficult if not impossible for them to pay the required amounts. The recipient’s financial needs can also change, requiring a modification in the child or spousal support amount. No matter what your specific circumstances are, if you are interested in seeking a modification of any aspect of a divorce settlement, you should look to a Seattle family lawyer at our firm for assistance.
