Monmouth County Increasing Child Support Attorneys

Although child support payments are determined during the initial divorce process, the needs of a child and the situations of the parents change over time, making changes to these payments often necessary. In many cases, these changing needs may cause one parent to need more child support from the other. However, while increasing child support payments is often a major issue for both the paying and receiving spouse, getting the payments you need is not always easy.

At the Law Office of Andrew A. Bestafka, Esq., we know the difficulties many people in Monmouth County face while trying to obtain or fight greater child support payments. Because of this sometimes complex process, many people turn to a legal representative for the help and guidance they need to get the outcome they are seeking.

Reasons for Increasing Child Support

There can be a number of reasons why, if you’re paying child support, you are asked to increase your payment amount, or, if you’re receiving support, why you may need more. Some of these reasons include:

  • Receiving spouse loses income / loses a job
  • Paying spouse has an increase in income
  • Increased medical / educational needs of child

Each of these reasons could justify a court-ordered increase in the amount of child support one spouse pays to the other. As such a modification can have a major effect on your life, making sure your interests are represented is critical.
