Child support modification requests usually surface when there is an income loss or increase, such as when a parent suffers a job loss or cut hours or when a parent is promoted. However, child support modifications can also be pursued if there is a change in the current child custody arrangement.
Visitation Modification: Whether the custodial parent relocates or your current visitation plan is just not working, we can help you file a petition to modify visitation.
Child Custody Modification: If it is in the best interest of your child(ren), it is possible to petition for a modification of child custody.
Alimony Modification: Spousal support is limited to cover only the time period reasonably necessary for the receiving spouse to become financially self-sufficient. As a result, requests to extend the time to receive alimony must be made within the period identified in the court order and must be supported by sound reasons. If the support is modifiable, and the spouse can demonstrate a significant change in circumstances (diminishing income and job loss for reasons outside of spouse control may well be sufficient), spouse may be able to get a modification. See MCL 552.28; Staple v Staple, 241 Mich App 562, 568, 578; 616 NW2d 219 (2000).
