CS modification


#1

A change of mind is not enough. A change in circumstances is required for a change in child support. A change in property distribution is not permitted even when a change in circumstances takes place.

Good luck.

If a consent order is in place for both division of property and CS issues, how likely is it that one parent is able to change the order in court when there is no change in circumstances? Can the person in question be granted change in modification simply because they don’t want to pay or think it is unfair? According to your site the modification is considered if change of 15% to income. What if there is no change in income only change in the mind of the one required to pay.
