Modifying Support And Custody Arrangements To Reflect Your Current Situation

When support or custody arrangements are made, they reflect the current situation of both parties. However, a given fact of life is that situations change. People may lose their job or receive a promotion. Schedules can become more or less available. As children get older, their needs change.

If you need to change your support or custody obligations, it is important to work with a Knoxville post-decree modification attorney who can help you change the decree to accurately match your current situation. At Underwood Law Office, P.C., that is exactly what you will find.
