Knowledge And Experience Are What Matter
Do You Need Help Modifying A Support Or Custody Agreement In South Carolina?
A divorce represents a significant change in your life. As you and your former spouse move forward, it is possible that your financial situations may evolve. As your needs in the future may be different than those of the present, a modification may be a necessary maneuver.
At Ballinger Law Firm, we understand that everyone’s circumstance is different. Founding attorney Beverly Ballinger routinely assists clients in the Mount Pleasant and Charleston areas, as well as, Berkeley and Dorchester Counties, as they seek to modify support or custody agreements.
When Can A Party Modify A Settlement Agreement?
A modification can be a useful tool. As a settlement agreement made today may not be applicable to the fact in five years, a modification can help you account for major changes to your living or financial situation. Some instances where a modification can make sense include:
- You or your spouse cohabitating with a new partner, making it possible to cancel spousal support
- A change in employment that may warrant an adjustment to child or spousal support
- A living arrangement shift that may call for a closer look at an existing custody agreement
To get a better understanding of your options, it is often helpful to speak with a family law attorney. At our firm, we can help you get a clearer picture of your situation before ultimately deciding if a modification may be right for you.
