Modification Child Support Agreements

This service is available across Spain

Who Is This Service For?

This service caters to individuals in Spain who wish to modify an existing child maintenance agreement due to altered circumstances. 

Clients typically face challenges in navigating complex legal frameworks surrounding child support, especially when economic conditions change. 

Whether it’s a decrease in income, change in custody arrangements, or differing needs of the child, such circumstances necessitate a review of the current child support arrangements. 

Our service aims to alleviate these problems by offering legal expertise in re-evaluating and adjusting child maintenance agreements to reflect the present circumstances, ensuring that the child’s well-being remains the focal point while also considering the financial capabilities of both parents.


The primary requirement to avail of this service is having an existing child maintenance agreement in Spain. 

Clients, regardless of their nationality, should have a vested interest in the child's welfare and a desire to ensure the financial arrangements reflect the current economic conditions of the parents. 

A change in financial circumstances or other significant changes affecting the child or the parents are essential grounds to seek a modification in the child maintenance agreement.


  1. The process begins with a thorough examination of the current child maintenance agreement, followed by an evaluation of the changed circumstances warranting a modification. 
  2. A claim for "modification of judicial measures" is prepared and filed in court, citing the substantial changes in the financial or personal circumstances of the parents or the child. 
  3. During court proceedings, evidence such as changes in income, expenses, or the child's needs is presented to justify the modification request. 
  4. The court, taking into account the income and expenses of each parent, may revise the maintenance amount to ensure proportionality and the child’s welfare.


  • Clients will benefit from a revised child maintenance agreement that accurately reflects their current economic situation and ensures the continued well-being of the child. 
  • By aligning the child support payments with the present circumstances, parents can better manage their finances while fulfilling their parental responsibilities. 
  • Moreover, this service offers peace of mind and legal certainty in a situation that can be emotionally and financially taxing.

What Does This Service Consist Of?

  1. Initial Consultation: We discuss your situation, understand the changes in circumstances, and gather necessary documentation.
  2. Review of Existing Agreement: Analyse the current child maintenance agreement to establish the grounds for modification.
  3. Preparation of Legal Documents: Prepare the necessary legal documents for filing a claim for “modification of judicial measures.”
  4. Representation in Court: Represent the client in court, presenting evidence and arguments for the modification of the child maintenance agreement.
  5. Negotiation with Other Party: If possible, negotiate with the other parent to reach an amicable agreement regarding the modification.
  6. Finalization of Modified Agreement: Once the court approves the modification, finalize the new agreement, ensuring it accurately reflects the revised terms of child maintenance.
  7. Post-Modification Advice: Provide guidance on complying with the new agreement and advise on any future legal considerations regarding child support in Spain.
