A divorce or custody agreement is designed to provide a roadmap based on the separating couple’s current situation. Modifications can be made to the custody and support arrangements for the child or children based on significant changes in circumstances. If the agreement allows, alimony can also be modified if you can show the change of circumstance. Modifications of Court ordered child support obligations are possible.
At the Gaithersburg and Bethesda offices of The McKeon Law Firm, we understand that life does not remain static. For example, if you recently lost your job, or were reduced to part time, had another child or perhaps obtained a job in another State or even abroad, modifications could potentially be made to your custody and support orders based on your current situation and your child’s best interests.
Contact our law firm today to obtain experienced help from a highly skilled Gaithersburg modification attorney. We also offer strong advocacy and legal counsel to clients looking to enforce their current divorce or custody agreement. Our background of handling both sides of modification and enforcement cases has proven to be invaluable in securing our clients’ best interests.

Experienced Team of Maryland Child Support Modification Lawyers
Every child support modification case is fact specific. Our law firm’s family law attorneys are committed to pursuing child support modifications based on a wide range of factors affecting our client’s financial situation, such as:
- Parent loses job and can now provide day care in exchange for paying less child support
- Job promotion increases the receiving spouse’s income level creating less of a need for child support
- Additional education needs or medical care for the child prompts an increase in child support payments
- Child turns 18 or graduates from high school, making child support no longer necessary

Handling the Modification of Alimony/Spousal Support in Montgomery County
A reduction in pay, unemployment, filing bankruptcy and other substantial changes in your financial situation can restrict your ability to continue making your alimony/spousal support payments. In Maryland, a significant change in the alimony recipient’s needs and the spousal support payor’s ability to pay can be grounds for a modification. At The McKeon Law Firm, we have extensive experience helping clients seek modifications to increase, decrease or terminate alimony payments altogether. When experience matters, entrust our law firm to help protect your rights.
