Geneva Child Support Modification Attorney

Elgin Alimony Enforcement Lawyer

Batavia – Elgin – St. Charles – Geneva – Aurora

Child support and visitation agreements are always subject to modification.

At the Law Office of Warren G. Sylvester, we work with parents to obtain child support modifications when they are needed due to a change in circumstances. If your former spouse has fallen behind on support payments or violated the visitation schedule, we may be able to file a contempt petition.

If you have questions or concerns about child support modification, please contact our Batavia law firm. Because we understand that individuals needing help with the enforcement of child support or alimony may be financially stretched, our law firm offers free, 30-minute initial consultations.

Whatever the needs, our law firm is committed to defending the parental rights of our clients.

A child support modification may be requested every three years in Illinois or whenever there is a significant change in the needs of the child. In addition, a child support modification may be requested if there is a significant increase in the income of the noncustodial parent and the child is under the age of 17.

The attorney presenting the claim in court for the custodial parent must be able to prove that the noncustodial parent has the ability to pay. Otherwise, the court may decide to lower the support payment.

A noncustodial parent may also request a child support modification if his or her ability to pay has been diminished by a significant change in financial circumstances.

Custody and Visitation Enforcement

When child custody and visitation are at issue, it is extremely important to seek experienced legal advice as soon as something appears to be going wrong. This makes it possible to take the appropriate steps, including gathering evidence and building a record to substantiate any claim.

If you need help with child support modification, alimony enforcement, or child custody and visitation enforcement, please contact the Law Office of Warren G. Sylvester in Batavia today and tell us about your situation.
