Fight Child Support Modification Request

Family LawAttorney: Steven Lambert

April 27, 2021 – Sometimes life throws us a curveball. For example, the COVID19 pandemic has disrupted life for many people. In this case, though, our Family Law attorneys were able to successfully defend our client after an ex-spouse wanted to reduce child support due to changes bought about by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our family law attorneys were able to successfully argue that the pandemic was not a “substantially and continuing change,” which is required by the court to modify child support.
