Changing Child Support - Important Facts to Know

 

 

The overall reason you would bring a suit to modify child support is either too:

  • Change the amount of child support paid.

  • Change the scope of the child support, or

  • Change the duration of child support.

Please note that even if both sides agree to change the child support order it would still need to be approved by the court or go through the AG Child Support Review Process.
