We understand what it takes to win your modification case!
How does modification work?
Child support can be modified only if there is a “significant variance”
in the paying parent’s finances.
A significant variance is defined as any of the following:
- A 15% change in your gross income
- A change in the number of children for whom the supporting parent is responsible for
- The child being supported becomes disabled
- Both parties volunteer to modify the support order
State law forbids any retroactive modification of support, so a parent
looking for a modification of child support needs to immediately file
a modification petition.
Examples of circumstances where a modification may be appropriate include:
- Change in the co-parenting schedule
- A child reaches majority
- Loss of job
- Significant increase or decrease in the cost of childcare or health insurance
for the child
