Modification to Child Support

Modification to Child Support

Lawrenceville Divorce Attorney Serving Gwinnett County

A child support arrangement between two parents can be modified if there is a change in income or financial status for either parent, or if there is a change in the child's needs. For example, if the financial needs of the child dramatically increase, or if the noncustodial parent receives a pay raise or a promotion, it may be necessary to increase the amount of child support to the custodial parent. Conversely, if the child graduates high school, or if the noncustodial parent experiences the loss of a job or a reduction in pay, it may be necessary to decrease the amount of support going to the custodial parent. A Lawrenceville divorce attorney can provide you with help if you are seeking a modification to your child support arrangement, or if you are seeking to block a request for modification from the other parent.

Filing for Child Support Modification

Once you have received a child support order from a family court, you can seek a modification at any point thereafter. However, once you have successfully obtained an order for modification, you cannot file for another modification for two years from the date of the first order. The only exceptions to this rule include an involuntary loss of income, or a greater or lesser amount of visitation being taken by the noncustodial parent than what has been established in a court order.
