Colorado Springs Post-Decree Modification Attorneys
Changing Child Support & Child Custody Orders
Even though divorce and custody orders may be called final orders or permanent orders, they can be changed. In fact, sometimes they must be changed. If you need to modify child support or child custody orders based on a change in circumstances, our attorneys at the Law Office of Greg Quimby, P.C. can help. For more than two decades, our firm has been helping clients seek post-divorce modifications in Colorado Springs. We have what it takes to ensure that your orders reflect your needs and the needs of your children.
Child Support Modifications
In Colorado, child support lasts until the child reaches age 19 or is emancipated. At any time before that, you can request a modification to your child support obligations or award if there has been a change in circumstances that would result in at least a 10% change in the amount of support.
Changes that may necessitate a child support modification include changes in:
- Child care
- Health care coverage
Child Custody Modifications
Parenting time can be modified based on a change in either parent’s circumstances and/or the needs of the children. Some of the more common examples are changes in a parent’s work schedule, including military deployment. More difficult changes occur if a parent develops drug or alcohol problems or is convicted of a crime. Some modifications are minor, while others are more drastic. Our post-decree modification lawyers in Colorado Springs have helped parents handle the gamut of problems with a variety of solutions.
