Modification and Enforcement of Child Support

When circumstances change, it can become necessary to modify the terms of your child support agreement or order. While that agreement or order may have been acceptable at one time, if your income situation changes, if your child’s needs become different, or if your living situation changes then it is important to find out if your child support award or obligation must be modified. Since there are a number of factors which may contribute to the necessity of the modification of child support, it is important that you get the assistance from a proven and experienced Child Support lawyer at Riebling, Proto & Sachs, LLP.

Often, the longer the issue of child support modification is not addressed, there is a good chance that you could be paying or receiving the incorrect amount. As such, it is important to consult a Westchester County family law attorney immediately if you believe that you need to modify the terms of your child support agreement.

As the New York Child Support laws require specific terms and calculations before it can be deemed valid and enforceable, it's in your best interests and essential that you enlist the services of a skilled and professional child support lawyer. Our attorneys have helped hundreds of clients to make sure that their new agreement is entirely valid and enforceable. By doing so, we have helped our child support clients avoid any future conflicts.

If your financial or living situation has changed, you may need to modify your child support agreement. Contact a lawyer as soon as possible to see what action we can take to help you with your child support modification.

Circumstances where our skilled child support lawyers have assisted clients get their modification:

  • Changing jobs due to a change in your field, vocation or industry.

Enforcement of Orders and Agreements

Both parties in a divorce or in a Family Court case must adhere to the terms of a Court Order or the provisions of your settlement agreement. In most instances, payment or receipt of child support enforcement becomes a point of contention between the parties. When it becomes necessary to compel the other party to follow the Court Order or settlement agreement, you should have lawyers who are accomplished and have the necessary experience to protect your rights. The enforcement attorneys at Riebling, Proto & Sachs, LLP are ready to use a number of different methods to enforce your rights include motions for contempt, willfulness petitions, wage garnishments, and locating and freezing assets.
