Modification of Custody and Support

The attorneys at Bell & Washington know how unexpected life can be, with many aspects of your life changing continuously. Decisions that are made at the time of a divorce may work and seem appropriate for both parents at the time, however, as children grow, situations change, and unexpected events in life occur, existing orders of child custody and support often need revision and modification. We will assist you to incorporate these changes into your child support and custody as we have in the past for parents throughout the Atlanta area, when they have faced new jobs, relocation, or when step-parents have left the original order out-of-date.

There are many reasons to modify a court ordered child custody or support order. Recent economic trends have shown an increasing number of professionals who have been laid off or have their employment downsized. It is also possible that your former partner may have remarried or found a new job. Additionally, the cost of child care can fluctuate significantly as your child grows up. Such life changes are often grounds for child support modifications. It is imperative that you seek modification promptly because modified orders affect only earnings from the point of order and beyond.

Our team of attorneys at Bell and Washington can also file for a modification of child custody and visitation, because it is not uncommon for one of the parents of the child to relocate to another state. If you are facing new life circumstances that call for a modification of child custody and/or support, contact the attorneys at Bell & Washington in our Atlanta office. Our team of family law attorneys has 50 years of combined experience that will ensure you are given the highest quality legal representation. There are no fees or obligations for an initial consultation and we would be delighted to speak with and assist you. Call us today at 404.437.6641 for a free consultation.
