Modification of Existing Child Support Orders

posted on

One of the most common questions I am asked by clients is: when will the judge grant a Complaint for Modification regarding child support?

There are several situations in which a modification is appropriate.

An existing order for child support may be modified in any of the following situations:

1.  There is an inconsistency between the amount of the existing order and the amount that would result from the application of the child support guidelines;

2.  health insurance previously available at reasonable cost is no longer available (or if available but not at reasonable cost);

3.  health insurance not previously available to a party at reasonable cost has become available;

4. any other material and substantial change in circumstances has occurred.

If you think you are eligible for a modification of your existing child support order, please contact our office today for a free consultation.
