Connecticut Support Obligations Are Modifiable: Pay Less or Receive More
Court-ordered child support or spousal support, also known as alimony, whether allocated or unallocated, is a serious matter. Sometimes situations change, such as employment, remarriage or relocation. If you are paying support, you may have the opportunity to lower or terminate these payments, for example, if the payee is earning more money or if you have taken pay reduction. If you are receiving support you may have the opportunity to increase your support. For example if the payor is earning more money. This is called a post-judgment modification.
The Prince Law Group, LLC can assist you with this modification procedure. Failure to meet the conditions of the court order may result in a charge of contempt. If contempt is found, then attorney fees are awarded. Be pro-active. If you have a change in employment and need to reduce your support payment call us now for a consultation. Know your rights. Wendy Prince is available to meet clients in the morning or evening often returning from New York City. We are within walking distance from the Stamford Transportation Center.
Many post-judgment modifications are negotiated by the parties, and a Post-Judgment Agreement is entered in court. Mediation is available to discuss the new situation and work out an agreement that best suits both parties. For example, lower monthly payments now and extend them out for a longer time period.
