We represent clients in all types of post-decree matters, including:

  • Modifications to child support orders
  • Modifications in child custody and visitation agreements and orders
  • Parental relocation
  • Modifications in child support
  • Termination of parental rights
  • Restraining and protective orders

Your Situation Can Change

In Illinois, child support requirements are based on the incomes of the parties and the amount of time the child lives with a parent. Needless to say, your income and work situation, and that of your ex-spouse, can change over time. A layoff, a job promotion with a higher salary, or period of disability can cause the required support level to change.

The Law Office of Donald M. Tegeler, Jr. can obtain post decree divorce modifications in simple matters with minimal effort and involvement on your part. For example, we can obtain an increase in child support if you are a receiving party, or a decrease in support if your are a responsible party, or we can negotiate a new parenting plan visitation agreement which is workable for both parties and fits your schedule.

We are also prepared to aggressively represent you in difficult and contentious post decree matters such as parental relocation disputes or termination of parental rights efforts.
