One of the most basic responsibilities that come hand in hand with being a parent is providing for one’s children. As many Dallas parents can attest to, being there emotionally, financially and physically for a child is difficult enough in today’s fast-paced world when parents are married-when they decide to end a marriage it may become even more difficult. Parents try to, and if they cannot, courts create a parenting plan and child support agreement that will cater to the child’s best interests. In lieu of this, courts require child support payments from one spouse to another to help ensure the child’s financial needs are being met.
As mentioned in last week’s post, keeping up with child support payments is very important-if the paying parent does not complete their payments on time, it can have a far reaching legal impact on many aspects of their life. However, times and circumstances change from when the original agreement was entered into, and people are unable to make the payments. Rather than simply try to walk away from the financial obligation, Dallas residents should consider applying for a post-divorce modification.
In order to qualify for a modification, certain factors must be proven in court, as discussed in last week’s post.
