The requesting party must complete the proper documentation for modification, including the required motion and financial data. The court only allows requests to modify child support for specific situations.
When a change of the child’s physical care occurs, whether court-ordered, voluntary, or mutually agreed upon, the court may modify or terminate the existing child support order as of the date of change in the physical care.
The court allows modifications for other changes in circumstances. However, the party seeking the change generally must show that the adjustment in circumstances results in a 10% or greater impact on the monthly child support obligation.
