Divorce is a process full of frustrations and interpersonal issues. You and your former spouse are probably struggling with the idea of co-parenting after a divorce. If you are paying child support during the divorce proceedings, you may become frustrated with the amount of support when compared to the amount of time you get to spend with your children. The temporary custody and support orders created when one party files for divorce often take into account only information provided by the filer. That means that the amount of child support (and potentially spousal support) may be too high for you.
Changing child custody orders might be necessary as your child's needs change or other circumstances shift. You must understand some basic points and make a plan accordingly, whether you are seeking the modification or if your ex files the petition.
You agreed to grant physical custody of the kids to your wife as part of your divorce settlement. You know that the court will order you to pay child support for both your children. In general, the state bases the amount of child support that you will pay on the income of both you and your future ex-wife.
