    Child support is modifiable anytime there is a change of circumstances. Your situation is not unique in that as children get older it's harder to exercise set periods of time with them. If your ex were to file for a modification of support, it would be advisable to meet with an attorney to discuss how guideline child support is calculated and the trends related to calculation of timeshare in your county.

    The first step is to determine whether any court has assumed jurisdiction over your daughter, meaning the legal ability to make decisions about your daughter (ie custody, visitation). Once jurisdiction is determined to be in a particular state or county, you could be in a position to file to obtain access to your daughter that is deemed to be in her best interests. I recommend you consult with an attorney to discuss the jurisdictional issues as it can be a complicated situation to understand when other states and/or counties are involved.

    As stated above, you will not need to file the Response form, however, it will need to be served at the time of service. Also, just a reminder that if a Summons has been issued (or re-issued) it will also need to be served.

  • I am a disabled parent i can't work and i would like to modify my custody agreement. I need more rights to my daughter;

    I WANT TO MODIFY MY AGREEMENT , WHAT SHOULD I DO

    Lindsey’s Answer

    Without knowing the details of your case, it's hard to determine what the likelihood of you increasing your visitation or access to your daughter would be, as the best interests of a child are what are paramount to the family court. The first step is to file the appropriate paperwork, most likely a Request for Order. I encourage you to consult with an attorney to discuss this process or you may utilize the services of the Self-Help Center at the courthouse.

    If I want to fight against a temporary domestic violence restraining order issued from my ex and I must win, shall I consult with a criminal defense lawyer with more DV trial experiences, or a family atterney that understands more about family mat...

    Lindsey’s Answer

    Your question leads me to believe that there may also be a criminal case pending which relates to the Domestic Violence restraining order. If so, it is important that any attorney you work with be aware of the pending criminal matter as you have rights which you do not wish to compromise in "fighting" the Domestic Violence restraining order. The ideal attorney is someone who has experience in both family law and criminal law or a family law attorney who is willing to consult with a criminal defense attorney in your county.
