How to Obtain a Modification
To make any change to a support or custody order, you will have to prove that a substantial or material change in your life necessitates the modification.
A modification might be approved in situations where:
- One parent needs to relocate for work, a family emergency, or other situation
- One spouse loses their job
- One spouse is demoted or receives a substantial pay raise
- A minor child’s needs change, such as for medical or education reasons
