Modifying Child Support And Alimony Payments

Alimony and child support payments exist because big financial changes usually accompany a divorce. And because circumstances can continually change over the years, North Carolina law allows for the possibility to modify those payments.

The law, however, is also very specific about what it takes to receive a modification. At Plumides, Romano, Johnson & Cacheris, PC, of Charlotte, we can help you seek a modification that stabilizes your financial situation. Whether you feel you are paying too much or receiving too little, our attorneys can put their experience and expertise to work for you.

When You Can Seek A Modification

Much like modifying child custody, courts will only approve a modification of alimony or child support payments if there has been a material, substantial change in circumstances. These changes could be:

  • Your child suffering from an illness or injury that requires more child support for medical care
  • Your child attending a new school that charges more for tuition
  • Drastic change in daycare costs or health insurance
  • You or your spouse receiving a substantial raise
  • Involuntarily losing your job

Our firm has been helping people through all types of family law disputes for more than 50 years. Now, with two North Carolina board-certified family law specialists as partners, few firms understand these issues better than ours. We know when judges will be likely to grant modifications and when they will want more evidence. Having this knowledge available to you will save you both time and money.
