Illinois Child Support And Alimony Modifications Attorney

It is not unusual at all for a mother, father, ex-husband or ex-wife to seek a modification of court orders. There are valid reasons for modifying child support or alimony payments such as:

  • The paying parent or former spouse has experienced a significant increase or decrease in income.
  • The recipient parent or former spouse has had a significant increase or decrease in income.
  • There has been or will be a significant change in child custody and visitation.
  • Either the payer or the recipient has experienced a major life change such as a catastrophic injury, remarriage or a financial catastrophe such as business failure, foreclosure or bankruptcy. (Note: Bankruptcy does not remove child support obligations. However, it may be an indicator of a big picture that includes a major decline in income.)
  • New information regarding hidden assets or a windfall by either party makes a review and re-analysis of alimony orders appropriate.

Keep in mind that the standard of proof for seeking to change a support order after it is already in place is generally more stringent than at the time of an original court order. A knowledgeable, experienced divorce and child custody lawyer can help you determine whether your case has merit and will be cost-effective to bring before a judge.
