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.
