How long has it been since you have had your child support order reviewed?
In order to have a child support order reviewed, one must show that there has been a substantial change in circumstances which would allow the Court to consider a modification of child support. The law provides that if your child support order has gone unreviewed and unchanged for a period of thirty-three (33) months, you have met the first prong of the legal test in establishing to the Court that there has been a substantial change of circumstances. You may then ask the Court to review your child support obligation. Of course, you will want to ensure that you have taken proper steps prior to any court hearing so that you know what your former spouse’s income is, what the placement schedule is, and what your income is so that you can perform the correct child support calculation. The better prepared you are, the more successful you will be in court.
