Information specific to your case is essential when determining if a modification to your current level of support is possible, so you should be prepared to provide this information to one of our Seattle child support attorneys. Certain criteria must be met according to Washington family law, and often a dramatic lifestyle change is considered a valid reason for a modification and the level of support. Another valid reason may include incapacitation due to poor health, or the loss of one's job.

Other circumstances that go beyond a dramatic lifestyle change may also be recognized in family court as a valid reason for a change in support. Our Seattle family law lawyers will help you determine if you're eligible for an increase, and then develop a plan to address your needs with the court if an increase seems reasonable.

Additionally, the law imposes a deadline for you to respond to modification papers and failing to do so will likely result in family court awarding a support increase without your input.

Our Seattle child support modification lawyers all offer a free consultation to anyone facing modification issues, so that a decision can be made concerning representation without making a monetary commitment.
