Am I Eligible For An Increase In My Child Support?


Seeking a Modification of Child Support

Sometimes circumstances change after a child support hearing has occurred and a child support order has been issued, or after the negotiation of an agreed upon amount of child support.  These changes circumstances may include:

  • Increases in the payor parent’s income or decreases in that income not associated with misconduct
  • Increases in the payee parent’s income or decreases in that income not associated with misconduct
  • Loss of employment for reasons other than misconduct, such as layoffs, furloughs, restructuring and similar situations
  • Reduction or loss of income due to disability
  • Other substantial and continuing changes in the circumstances of the parties which affect their income

Presenting Your Case For Or Against Modification

To present a valid request for modification, or to successfully defend against a request for modification, the moving party has to provide sufficient evidence to demonstrate that there has, or has not been, a change of circumstances since the entry of the last order.   This is best done by an experienced lawyer who understands what evidence would support a modification request, or how best to defend against one.

We strongly encourage against handling this yourself and instead, encourage you to lean on our guidance.
