When is it time for a custody modification?

Going through a divorce can be tedious and overwhelming. Once the divorce decree is finalized, it may seem as though the terms of the settlement are set in stone. Yet, life changes occur and circumstances may come up that warrant a modification of the original settlement. Child custody is one of the changes that may be made to a divorce settlement. There are a myriad of factors that can change once a child custody order is put in place and these changes could make it difficult to adhere to the terms originally set in the settlement. 

Failure to pay child support can have consequences

When parents file for divorce, they still have a responsibility to support their children both emotionally and financially. California uses the income shares model of determining child support, meaning both parents’ income is factored into the child support payment. Children are entitled to receive the same amount of financial support that they would have if their parents would have stayed together. Yet, when one parent fails to make their court-ordered child support payment, there can be severe consequences. Not only is it a federal law to stay on top of child support payments, but it is California state law as well.
