Help With Custody and Support Modifications in the San Fernando Valley

With the recent downturn in the U.S. economy, many child custody, child support and spousal support orders may need to be reexamined. With layoffs and shutdowns, many custodial and noncustodial parents are finding their circumstances have changed dramatically. Some parents have found it necessary to move in order to find new employment.

If you entered into a custody, child support or spousal support order and your financial or custody situation has changed, we can help you take the necessary steps to modify the existing divorce decree. Changing an existing court order is not an easy process. As a certified family law specialist, Robert Gantman handles all matters related to the following:

  • Child custody modifications. Whether you or your spouse seeks to change the custody arrangement because of a move-away or for any other reason, we will work closely with you to revise your custody agreement. We will also help you understand the advantages and disadvantages of joint custody, so that you can determine whether it is in your child's best interests.
  • Child support modifications. Child support orders can be changed for a variety of reasons, including a change in income or job status, the health care needs of the child, or custody and visitation arrangements. We will work with you to ensure that the new order complies with California guidelines.
  • Alimony or spousal support modifications. When modifying a spousal support order, the court will review all the factors that were considered when the initial order was issued, to see if any have changed significantly. We will review these factors with you to help you determine your likelihood of success and will aggressively represent you if we believe your request has merit.
