Rochester Hills Child Support Modification Information

Reasons to Modify a Child Support Order

There are different reasons to modify a child support order. Some reasons are temporary and other reasons may be permanent. Temporary modifications may be due to medical and financial hardships, such as a child's medical emergency. Permanent modifications may be awarded if either parent loses their job, the child's needs significantly changed or either parent becomes disabled.

Process in Modifying Child Support Orders

You can modify the child support order by increasing or decreasing the amount when changed circumstances have occurred. You must make the request to the Judge by presenting evidence of the changed circumstances. Speaking with a child support modification attorney in Rochester Hills will allow you to know whether a certain circumstances can modify a child support order.

Best Time to Seek Legal Help

No matter what your legal issue may be, it is always best to seek legal help early in the process. An attorney can help secure what is likely to be the best possible outcome for your situation and avoid both unnecessary complications or errors.

Tips on Approaching an Initial Attorney Consultation

  • Use the consultation as a means of gaining a better understanding of your legal situation.
  • Ask the attorney how many cases similar to yours he/she has handled. An attorney's experience and knowledge can speak to their expertise (or lack of) in addressing your situation.
  • Your attorney should be able to articulate roughly how long a case like yours will take to resolve and what sort of procedures to expect.
  • Determine how comfortable you are working with the lawyer and/or law firm.

How will an attorney charge me?

A reputable attorney will be very upfront about how he/she will charge you. The three most common fee structures that attorneys use to charge for their services are:

  • Bill by the hour
  • Contingent fee agreement
  • Flat fee agreement

Depending on your specific legal situation, it's possible that only one type of fee structure is available. For instance, criminal defense attorneys almost always bill by the hour. In a flat fee arrangement, an attorney accepts a one-time payment to help you resolve your issue. With a contingent fee agreement, the client pays little to nothing upfront and the attorney receives a percentage of the money recovered if you win your case.
