Here is the info from our county’s website so I would suggest you type in “child support” and your county and see what comes up:
Review and Modification
What is modification?
Modification occurs when the terms of the child support and/or medical support order are changed. A significant change in the parent’s circumstances is required for the order to be modified. Either parent, a guardian, or the child support enforcement agency can ask for a review of a child support order to see if the amount of the order should be changed or if health insurance needs to be added. A review will be made if it has been at least three years from the date of your latest court order or three years from the date it was last reviewed. A review can only take place frequently if there is a major change in the obligor’s income or some other significant change. You should contact your local child support agency if:
You lose your job
You have a substantial increase or decrease in income
Custody of your child changes
However, once the review process is started, it can’t be stopped. Your order could increase, decrease, or stay the same. Be sure that you have a legitimate reason for requesting a modification. To be eligible for modification, the new order must differ at least 15 percent from the current order. If the current order is less than $100 per month, the order can be modified if the difference between the new order and the current order is at least $15.00 per month.
Judges look at the circumstances of the job loss before making any change. The earning potential of unemployed non-custodial parents is used to determine the amount of the order. Unemployment benefits can also be intercepted to pay child support.
To determine whether a modification of the child support order is needed, the judge will need to know the name and address of the current or most recent employer of the non-custodial parent and his or her gross/net income.
Automatic reviews take place 36 months from establishment or 36 months from the time of the most recent review. Either party may also request a modification review under the circumstances discussed above.
