Modifying Child Support Orders

After a child support ruling has been put in place as part of a divorce proceeding, there can be the option to modify this order where circumstances warrant it. This is to serve all parties involved most fairly if financial or other circumstances have changed since the original order was made.

  • The original order will have been based on:
  • The income of both parents
  • Living costs involving the children
  • The amount of time the child or children spend with each parent

Therefore, any significant changes in income for either parent, or changes in the other parts of the equation, may allow you to have a modification approved. In order to go about this correctly and improve your chances of a successful outcome, seek the help of an experienced family attorney.
