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
