child supportIf you're finding it difficult to get by on the amount of child support you are receiving, or you were recently notified that an ex-spouse is seeking to modify a current order of support, our Seattle child support modification lawyers can help you address the situation. It is vital that you understand your legal rights while protecting the future of your children, so you will need to work with Seattle family law lawyers who will give your case the personalized attention it deserves.

Sometimes a person's life takes an unexpected turn and they find themselves facing financial hardships that could have a devastating effect on their children. Fortunately, Washington family law makes it possible to modify a support order so that children are never the ones that suffer from unfortunate and unforeseen circumstances.

While family law cases can often be emotionally draining, or even contentious, our Seattle child support modification attorneys can help you by determining if your current formula for support needs changing. Whether seeking financial relief for your child, or if you think that your ex-spouse is seeking a support modification without just cause, our Seattle family law lawyers will protect your interests throughout this difficult process.

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.

Our divorce attorneys in Seattle can help you better understand modification papers

In some cases, ex-spouses will seek relief in the form of increased support. If this has happened to you, your first action should be to contact one of our Seattle child-support attorneys. If you believe that your ex-spouse is seeking relief without just cause, then this course of action is especially important. 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. Get more information today by contacting our law office about issues involving child support modification, and make sure your legal rights are protected in family court.

"I can't say enough great things about Jason Newcombe Law Office. I am retired military and I highly recommend Jason Newcombe Law Office. I reached out to Jason's office after sitting for hours reviewing multiple Domestic Violence Law Offices in King County. He responded before that day was over. I spoke with Jason's both in-person and by phone; felt very comfortable with his years of experience and straight talk. He took on my case, took me through the process with sound advice. The Attorney Erin Lane who accompanied me with my court appearances; can't praise and thank her enough for her time, selflessness and educational information prior to each court appearance. She made a really daunting task for me less fearful, given such grim circumstances. I am forever grateful for Jason and the Team of Attorneys." Tommy Harville
