As you and your partner came to a child support agreement during your divorce, that agreement should have been very representative of both of your financial circumstances at the time. However, those financial circumstances are likely to change over time, thereby making a past child support agreement less appropriate.
Should the need arise, then, it may become necessary to decrease your child support payments to a level that is more representative of you and your former partner’s current financial capabilities.
Reasons to Reduce Child Support Payments
While the clients we represent choose to modify their child support payments for a number of legitimate reasons, our Houston child support attorneys more commonly work to help our clients decrease their child support payments on the following grounds:
- Their income has significantly decreased
- Their former spouse’s income has significantly increased
- The support required by their child has decreased
- Their former spouse remarries
- Their child will be turning 18
In every case, our Houston legal team will do everything they possibly can to help our clients protect their interests.
