Child Support Modification


Oftentimes following a divorce or when two parents are not living together, the South Carolina family courts will order child support. The amount of child support that is due each month is dependent on several factors, including both parties’ income, the needs of the child, and more. When factors change, child support agreements often require modification to ensure they are based on up-to-date information. When one parent loses a job, gets a promotion, or changes his or her living situation, or when the needs of the child change, child support modification is often necessary. However, having representation from an experienced family law attorney is crucial in ensuring that child support modifications are done correctly in a manner that is fair to all parties and in concordance with the law.

Protecting Children And Parents

In cases where parents don’t get along, the issue of child support can be especially fraught with emotion. Sometimes one parent will use child support as a means of getting revenge on the other, either by not paying or by pushing for a child support order that will cause undue financial hardship for the other. Oftentimes the children in question are aware of what is going on, and these disputes can cause major distress. Either party can be vulnerable when it comes time to modify a child support agreement, so retaining legal counsel from a knowledgeable child support attorney is wise.

If you feel your child support arrangement needs to be changed, or if you have been notified that child support modification is necessary, Charleston, SC child support lawyer G. Edward Hawkins, III, is ready to put his years of experience as a family law attorney to work for your family.
