The response posted above is based upon the limited factual information made available and is not intended as a full and complete response to the question. The only reliable manner to obtain complete and adequate legal advice is to consult with an attorney, fully explain your situation, and allow the attorney sufficient opportunity to research the applicable law and facts required to render an accurate opinion. The basic information provided above is intended as a public service but a full discussion with an attorney should be undertaken before taking any action.


Your FAQ’s state that if child support is embodied in a sep agreement, the standard for modification requires only that the moving party must show the amount of support necessary to meet the reasonable needs of the child at the time of the hearing. How is this typically done? Is it through the NC support tables based on each parents income/overnights, or is there some other method.

Thank you.
