Child Custody and Child Support

Post-Judgment Modifications

Illinois divorce lawyers often see ex-spouses remarry, incomes increase or decrease, and the needs of minor children change. These changes frequently impact spousal support, child support, and the allocation of parenting time and parental responsibilities (child custody and visitation). If adjustments to your divorce decree are in order, family law attorney Roger Stelk will help you seek a modification from the court to your existing custody, visitation, or support orders.
