Child Support Modification Through Mediation
Child Support Modification
Child support orders often need to be modified as a parent's circumstances change - i.e, job changes, layoffs, income increases or decreases. Mediation provides a controlled environment where the parents can exchange information, get question answered and determine if the existing order needs to be modified. Under recent ethics rules, family law mediators in Indiana can help parents prepare Child Support Obligation Worksheets, and agreed court orders modifying child support. Through mediation, child support modification can be completed without the need to attend any court hearing.
If it appears to one or both parents that modification of the child custody or parenting time order is appropriate, mediation allows an opportunity to discuss and make decisions about any desired change. Mediation with a skilled and experienced family law mediator helps parents raise and listen to concerns or circumstances that might give rise to a need for custody or parenting time modification. Even if the parents do not eventually agree to any modification of custody or parenting time, mediation of the underlying concerns often provide the parties with greater understanding and agreements about parenting issues that are extremely beneficial in co-parenting under the current custody order.
