Frequently Asked Questions
What are reasons to modify child custody, support, or visitation?
In order to modify custody, there must be a substantial change in circumstances from when the original judgment was entered. Visitation can be modified if it is in the child’s or children’s best interest. Child or spousal support can be modified or terminated if there is a change in either parties’ financial situation.
My employment situation and income changed. Can I modify my spousal and/or child support payments?
Yes, you may have a basis to modify spousal or child support if your employment or income has changed.
My ex-spouse has fallen behind on their spousal support and child support payments. What options are there so my family gets the money we need?
Contempt of Court is one option to enforce a spousal or child support obligation. If the Oregon Division of Child Support is collecting the support payments, they may also have other enforcement options.
My work schedule has changed and I need to adjust my visitation schedule. Can you help?
Yes! A change to work schedule may necessitate a change to your child visitation schedule. Let’s talk.
Will child support change if I get full custody?
Potentially. Child support is based upon a number of factors, including how many overnights a parent spends with the child each year. Therefore, if the visitation schedule changes then child support could change.
