Adjustments in Support for Changes Occurring After Your Divorce
Once a support obligation has been established, it is not permanent. A modification of support may be possible in circumstances such as:
• Significant changes in income, such as promotions, pay cuts or loss of job,
• New employment,
• Illness or disability suffered by a parent or child,
• A growing child’s more demanding financial needs,
• A spouse receiving maintenance remarries or lives with a new boyfriend or girlfriend.
Adjustments in Custody and Parenting Time
Sometimes situation arise where the visitation schedule may be required to be changed. This may arise when there is a change in an employment schedule, a spouse moves or wants to remove the children from the State of Illinois. Sometimes because of significant changes it may be in the child’s best interest that custody be changed.
