Dupage County Lawyers

Chicago Child Custody Modification Lawyer


Family dynamics naturally change over time, as children graduate from high school, parents re-marry, and ex-spouses relocate for new job opportunities. As these changes happen, your child custody, visitation, child support and spousal support orders may need to be revised to reflect your current circumstances.

At Wolfe & Stec, Ltd., our DuPage County modifications lawyers have extensive experience helping clients in cases involving modifications to child support, alimony, child custody or visitation orders. We also provide vigorous enforcement representation.

If you need to change your family court order — or if you oppose a change the other parent is seeking — we can assist you. For a free initial consultation with a knowledgeable DuPage County modifications lawyer, contact us online or call 630-305-0222 or 312-388-7882.

Modifying Alimony, Child Custody, Child Support And Visitation Orders

A modification of your family court order is appropriate whenever you have experienced a significant change in circumstances. This could be because one parent needs to move away, because of a substantial change in one parent’s income, or because of a change in the child’s needs.

In order to qualify for a modification to your order, these changes must be both substantial and long-term, such as:

  • A child turns 19 and meets the criteria for ending child support
  • A child experiences new medical needs, wants to attend private school, or wants to live with the other parent (in appropriate circumstances)
  • A parent gets a new job or is promoted, and now has a substantially higher income
  • A parent is laid off indefinitely or is forced to accept a lower-paying job
  • A parent becomes available to provide daycare, reducing child care expenses

Additionally, many modification requests will not be approved unless they are in the best interest of the children involved.

Our attorneys will sit down with you and discuss your situation, explain the process and requirements, and address your concerns. As experienced DuPage County modifications lawyers, we know how to develop compelling legal arguments regarding these modifications and how they will affect your children.
