It goes without saying that families change. In the weeks, months and years following a divorce, there may be innumerable variables that require a modification to support or custody. This is particularly true in the current economic landscape. These changes may include:
- One parent/spouse losing a job or changing jobs/careers
- Parent relocation
- Emancipation of a child
- Additional financial needs of a child changing over time
- Accusations of unfit parenting
In Missouri, if someone requests a divorce modification, it is necessary to demonstrate a significant and material change concerning a child’s needs or a payer’s ability to financially meet obligations. If you are dealing with any of these issues, it is important to act decisively by partnering with a skilled lawyer who will take the time to understand your issues and help you move toward an ideal resolution as efficiently as possible.
