Child Support Modifications

Your original child support agreement may need to be changed due to parental lifestyle changes. Or, if it was inadequate to begin with. 

Hiring a legal team to formalize child support modifications in writing is the best way to protect you and your child's best interests. 

Do you need help? The Law Office of Randy Michel has handled child support modifications for College Station, TX, families since 1983.

Why Child Support Modifications May be Necessary

  • Parents' lives change greatly after a divorce. New circumstances may require a modification of your original child support agreement. This may be necessary if a parent relocates, experiences a change in income or earning capacity, encounters medical issues, or remarries. It is also possible to seek modifications for orders without any substantial lifestyle change, as long as the order was established or last changed more than three years ago. 
  • Randy Michel is a board-certified civil trial attorney with judicial, mediation, and arbitration experience. He knows how to draft robust support modifications, and revisit existing orders that another lawyer may not have properly executed. No matter how minor or temporary the change, it is imperative that it is formalized in writing at our College Station, TX, office. Hiring legal representation is the best way to protect your child's best interests.

The Michel Modification Approach

Mr. Michel can provide sound legal counsel that benefits both the parents and child. He explains the modification process thoroughly from the start, provides reasonable timelines, and clearly explains how modifications may impact children. 

Attorney Michel conducts modifications of child support orders in Texas with two overarching principles in mind:

  • The best interest of the child must be the primary consideration.
  • The resolution should allow for an ideal co-parenting situation in the future.

We were forced to have to retain an attorney in the state of Texas for a custody dispute. Randy and Andrea went above and beyond and we were successful! The issue was not only intrastate BUT also complicated and time sensitive. I would recommend them to anyone!

Initial Consultation

Modifying your child support agreement starts with a consultation with Attorney Michel. By understanding your personal situation, our legal team in College Station, Texas, can help you build the most convincing argument for why your desired modifications should be made. He can also advise you about what modifications are possible.

Begin With Mediation

Resolving modifications outside of court can be both emotionally and financially beneficial for both parents and children. Mr. Michel believes that mediation should always be the first avenue of resolution as it can often yield the best possible outcome in the most cooperative manner.

Start the Negotiation

Through mediation, both parents will negotiate the terms of their modification, with Attorney Michel acting as the mediator. Negotiating a customized agreement can give both parties more control over the results.

Litigate if Necessary

Enforcement proceedings are most common in the case of family law. If mediation is unsuccessful, Mr. Michel can provide skilled representation in court, drawing on his abilities as a board-certified civil trial attorney. Having served as both a judge and attorney in family law cases, he can guide you through your hearing to help you garner approval for your request.
