Amundson Law Office, a law firm in Eagan, MN, is pleased to announced that the firm’s Lisa Amundson can offer help with regards to modification of divorce court orders in Eagan and neighboring areas. For instance, the issue could be the reevaluation of spousal support and/or child support, or changes in income or employment. She offers a free initial consultation to those who think they need her services with regards to these family law issues.
When a divorce or child custody order has been finalized, support is arranged based on the current financial and living situation of the parties involved. However, simply putting a court order in place does not provide assurance that it will be followed by both parties, or that the circumstances will not change, such that the child support or spousal support order has to be re-evaluated.
When health or financial situations change, child and spousal support may also change. The goal of child and spousal support is to allocate funds between the parents to provide for the financial needs of the children. The amounts paid and received are based on each individual's situation. When these situations change, it is often a good idea to work with an experienced attorney like Lisa Amundson to see if and how they should affect the previous support orders.
In a previous press release, it was revealed how Lisa Amundson was providing her services as a Burnsville divorce lawyer. Burnsville is a city located a few miles sound of downtown Minneapolis. Her practice areas include divorce, child support, spousal support, child custody, parenting time, domestic abuse/OFP/HO, modifications to support or custody, and high asset divorce.
There may also be a need for a modification of a divorce court order because of changes in employment or income. People's employment status and income can change quickly. For instance, the child support or spousal support order may have been put in place when the other spouse was unemployed. However, if that spouse is now working, that can have a drastic effect on the amount of support that is to be provided. Conversely, one of the parties may be paying child or spousal support based on an income level that is no longer true. If such is the case, it is essential to change the support order.
Also, sometimes, parents need a lawyer because parenting time or other issues indicated in the support order have to be addressed. If one parent will not follow the custody or visitation agreements set forth by the court, additional enforcement efforts from the court may be required.
Like all issues involving family law, the need for modification or enforcement of support orders relies on the divorced couple’s unique situation. There are no hard and fast rules for when an effort has to be made on changing support. Therefore, the best way to determine the next step is to take advantage of a free initial consultation being offered by Lisa Amundson. She can help a client understand what, if anything, needs to be changed, and the various available options for moving forward.
