Providing Counsel & Guidance for Support Matters
When a court orders you to make spousal support or child support payments,
the amount and terms of the payments are dictated by the current circumstances
of each party. When these circumstances change, like if one party loses
their job, you may wish to make a change or modification to the order
to better reflect the current conditions.

and child support payments. When you retain our firm, our legal team will

Making Child Support Modifications
While most parents have no problem supporting the health and well-being
of their children, the terms of court-ordered payments may not always
fit changing circumstances. A modification in child support payments can
be either an increase or decrease in the amount, as well as a change in
the terms of the payments.
There are many valid reasons to modify a child support order, including:
- The income of either parent has changed
- Either parent has lost their job
- Either parent has been imprisoned
- The amount of time the child spends with each parent has changed
- The needs of the child have changed
How to Modify Alimony in California
In calculating alimony payments, the court will generally look at factors
that influence the earning potential of each spouse. Recent case law has
implied that spousal support payments are designed to be temporary, and
many judgments will require the receiver to become reasonably self-sufficient
within a specified period of time.
If you’ve experienced any major changes to your financial circumstances,
including having a child, losing your job, imprisonment, and others, you
may be eligible for a modification to your court ordered alimony payments.
Likewise, if the supported spouse has increased their income, entered
into a new romantic relationship, or experienced any other change in circumstances
that makes them more self-sufficient, you may be able to reduce or eliminate
your support payments.
