Despite your best efforts, sometimes you and your ex cannot reach an agreement on Alimony and Child Support.
If you and your ex can’t agree on a change, you’ll need to ask for a Court hearing in which each of you can argue for the amount you think is appropriate. As a general rule, in order to get a modification you must be able to show that something about your circumstances has changed since the court made the existing order. Depending on the nature of the changed circumstances, the court may make either a temporary or a permanent modification.
Nothing is more important than family. You want to do what is best for the people you love.
Examples of the types of changes that support temporary modification orders include:
- a child’s medical emergency
- the payer’s temporary inability to pay (for instance, because of illness or a temporary additional financial burden such as a medical emergency), or
- temporary financial or medical hardship on the part of the recipient parent.
A permanent modification may be awarded if:
- either parent loses a job or changes to a new job with significantly different income
- either parent remarries and the new spouse’s income increases the household income significantly
- the cost of living increases
- either parent becomes disabled
- the child’s needs change significantly, or
- child support laws change.

“Not only have I used Snyder & Wiles for legal services, but a number of my clients have also used the firm. From my clients’ perspective -Gladys explains and speaks to them in terms they can understand. As a CPA working with an attorney for the benefit of our mutual clients, Gladys does an incredible job. She cares about the client and what is best for the client. I have worked with Snyder & Wiles for over 25 years! If you are in need of an attorney, I would highly recommend Gladys Wiles and her firm!”
Don’t let the friendly caring smile fool you, Gladys Wiles is a tough and aggressive advocate for her clients’ who knows the law.
I endorse this lawyer. Her willingness to contribute to the AVVO community along with the substance of those contributions displays an attorney that is ready, willing and able to zealously advocate for her clients. I wouldn’t think twice about referring a potential client to Ms. Wiles.
I feel very comfortable referring personal injury matters to Gladys. She not only is an experienced attorney, she also knows how to treat clients with dignity and respect.
Gladys and her team are PHENOMENAL! I had been dragging my feet on updating my will since I moved to PA. Gladys had drafted it 4 years ago but I’d never finalized it. Three days before a major surgery I thought I should get things in order and stopped into Snyder & Wiles office to pick up my old will which they had on file and verify it would suffice should something happen in surgery. I saw Gladys as I entered; she greeted me warmly as always, and after hearing my story told me I wasn’t leaving her office until I had revised and signed the will she drafted earlier. I was absolutely blown away by her compassion, concern and willingness to change her schedule to take care of me. Forty five minutes later I was out the door with signed will in hand. Gladys and her team are absolutely the best and I most highly recommend her — she cares — that’s rare!
“Love this local law firm.. Someone I can trust and they know what they are doing – I had a great experience with this firm especially Gladys. Knowledgeable and Honest! If you are in need of an attorney – I suggest you contact Snyder & Wiles …Keep up the great work!”
“I can’t say enough about Gladys, Merna and whole team. They are there for me for my business and personal attorney needs. This team truly cares. They explain things in simple terms you can understand. They go above and beyond! I recommend everyone to Snyder Wiles. Highly recommend!”
I’m more than happy to endorse Gladys E. Wiles. I’ve used the firms title services for real estate transactions, the settlements go off without any problems, smiles all around the table. I’ve referred several people to Gladys and have heard nothing but great things. She’s warm and caring, but a tough attorney who will do anything to make sure you get what you deserve.
Gladys is an excellent attorney who understands the needs of her clients. She is the consumate professional who gives every case the attention it demands. She is always prepared to represent her clients in the best way possible.
