Need To Change Your Support Order?
The family law judges in Sacramento County and Placer County expect judgments of dissolution and divorce decrees to be followed pursuant to the parties’ intent. However, they also recognize that people lose jobs, get sick and are forced into other circumstances that make it impossible to meet their support obligations or parental responsibilities.
If you need to make a change to your divorce, custody or support judgment, don’t try to handle it outside of court. Call our attorneys at Sherlock // Anderson, PC. We can help you learn about the types of modifications that may be available.
