Life Changes And Child Support Agreements

Raising children is a lifelong adventure. The divorce or custody agreement is a solid foundation, but life events can disrupt the original plan – whether that means a new job, moving to a new city or state, budget issues that make you unable to meet your obligations or an uncooperative co-parent. It’s common to need a lawyer to update your parenting plan. It is important to notify the other parent in writing, preferably by certified mail, before you proceed with any relocation out of the jurisdiction of the court that issued your current custody order.

Workable Solutions That Meet Your Needs

When stress and anxiety affect your life, they also affect your parenting and your children. At , we seek to reduce conflict and pain. We work with you to find solutions that meet your needs. Our motto, “Counsel that cares,” reflects attorney Dyan Schnaars’ dedication to her clients, whether that means staunch defense of an existing settlement or negotiating new terms with your co-parent.

Dealing with life changes is never easy, and it’s important to find solutions before they take a toll on your family.
