Child Support & Child Custody Modifications

Fairfield County Child Support Attorney

Shelton, Connecticut, Child Support Lawyers

While most people do not wish to revisit divorce matters once a divorce has been finalized, they also realize that life changes. People remarry, move, return to school and change jobs. When these life events occur after a divorce has been finalized, a child custody and support lawyer may be needed to handle modification issues. At the law firm of Ryan & Tyma, our child support lawyers provide attentive and experienced guidance to clients who have experienced a significant change in material condition.

A significant change in material condition can cause one parent to request a modification to existing court orders. Whether you are requesting the change or opposing the change, talk to one of our child support lawyers. We can be reached toll free at 888.741.7051 or locally at 203.924.2601 to arrange your consultation.

Child Support Modifications

Requests for child support modifications will follow Connecticut child support guidelines. Modifications are granted when there has been a substantial change in material condition. Our attorneys can answer your questions about this, and some examples are as follows:

  • Remarriage
  • Increase in income
  • Decrease in income
  • Changing needs of child, such as health care needs or special needs

Child support modifications are granted or denied in the best interests of the child or children. Ryan & Tyma is dedicated to protecting your rights and advocating for the best interests of your children.

Child Custody Modifications

Similar to support modifications, child custody modifications are granted when there has been or will be a substantial change in material condition. For example, the custodial parent may wish to relocate to another state or country with the children. Or, a teenager may express an interest to live primarily with one parent or to live in another school district with the noncustodial parent. If granted, the modification will affect visitation arrangements and potentially support.

If you have questions about post-judgment matters, talk to one of our experienced attorneys. Contact us to schedule your consultation.
