Why Would Anyone Need a Modification?
There are numerous reasons why one party may want to modify an existing child support and/or child custody order. For example, the loss of one’s job would obviously mean a diminished source of income, as would a medical emergency or worsening disability. A change in one’s cost of living may also qualify as an acceptable reason for seeking a modification.
Communication is Key
It’s always helpful to explain why you are seeking a modification. A simple statement from your doctor explaining your worsening medical condition may suffice, as might a personal offer of non-financial support. Keep in mind, however, that the non-custodial parent might raise objections to a child support modification if she or he perceives that the other parent is simply trying to avoid honoring their financial obligations.
