Sometimes circumstances change in people’s lives making it difficult to keep up with child support payments or spousal maintenance obligations.
It may be a loss of employment, a reduction in wages or unanticipated expenses such as a medical bills or that the needs of a child have changed.
If you have an order for child support, it is eligible for a modification review every three years, or when there is a significant change in the needs of the child or the non-custodial parent’s income.
Before an order can be modified , a review of balances, the employment status of the non-custodial parent’s employment status and other pertinent information is conducted.
After requesting a modification on your case, you will be asked to complete appropriate forms pertaining to your income and expenses and other information related to the request.
