It is commonly understood that following a divorce, many circumstances may change as life, of course, is full of changes. Following a court order or settlement agreement concerning child support, modifications may be necessary for either one or both parties as circumstances change down the road.
For parents either seeking a modification or contesting a modification of a support order, it is important to understand what is involved. The government and, of course, the court are involved in child support issues. In circumstances when the financial situation of either of the parties has significantly changed, or the child's circumstances have significantly changed requiring a modification of child support, a child support modification may be possible.
