Modification

If there’s one constant in life, it’s changing. Like the seasons, lives can be expected to change, sometimes significantly. If your family is facing a major life change involving modifications to custody, visitation, child support or alimony matters, Swilling Family Law will work to advocate for the adjustments needed for your family.

Custody

There is perhaps no more of a stressful event for families than when changes happen that affect your children. When life changes to where custody is at issue once again, you may feel like your family’s stability hangs in the balance. Swilling Family Law will approach your case rationally, not emotionally, to expertly advise you as to how to best achieve your goals. In times of uncertainty—it is the coolest heads that prevail.

Our specialties include:

  • Relocation Custody Modification
  • Child Election Modification
  • Addiction-Related Modification
  • Abuse Based Modification

Child Support

The financial needs and overall well-being of children is the responsibility of both parents. Parents often change jobs and sometimes the parenting schedule changes to where the current child support does not make sense for the family. To that end, Swilling Family Law ensures its clients are well represented when calculating and negotiating child support matters.

Our specialties include:

  • Self-Employed Child Support Modification
  • Under-Employed Parent Child Support Modification
  • High-Income Child Support Modification

Alimony

When divorces are being settled and alimony is being considered, often the primary factors that determine spousal support amounts are financial need and ability to pay. But there are other factors that can have a significant impact on the final judgment — when articulated correctly to the court. Life after divorce can look quite different than when alimony was first awarded. Sometimes the former spouse has become successful and no longer needs as much assistance financially. Other times, job losses cripple a former spouse’s ability to pay the alimony ordered. Alimony modifications need a specific plan of action in Georgia. If alimony is something you wish to seek or is something you’re concerned about having to pay, Swilling Family Law will ensure all considerations are presented to ensure the most optimal outcome.
