Changing Child Support Orders

Although changing a
child support order can be difficult and time-consuming, it is possible under the right
No matter what state you reside in, child support orders are determined
based on the income of both parents. These financial figures, combined
with the best interests of the child, help judges determine how much each
parent should pay in child support. In most cases, the parent that does
not have full custody of the child will be asked to pay child support
in order to help the parent that does.
Yet, when the financial circumstances of the non-custodial parent change,
he/she may need to request
child support modification. If that parent loses a job, has additional bills to pay or is moving
out of state, a judge may change the terms of the child support agreement.
The same can go for the custodial parent if he/she needs to request more
money from the former spouse/partner.
