Four Reasons You May Eligible to Reduce Your Child Support Order

Practice Areas

Child support is ordered by family courts to support a child and all of his or her living expenses. This may be paid by either the father or mother of the children and is calculated according to a statewide formula. That said, life and circumstances change for parents and children. In some cases, when circumstances change, so does child support. Here are four circumstances where the court may choose to revisit the order and recalculate the amount that is owed:

  • There has been a significant change in the lifestyle, employment, or other major factors in either parent’s life.
  • There has been a change in the amount of time children are spending with each party.
  • If the parent paying support has had more children.
  • If the original order is determined to have been incorrectly calculated.
