Change Child Support When Parents Disagree
This form is helpful if you want to change your current child support order and the change is NOT because your child should be emancipated. This form should only be used when you and the child’s other parent do not agree on changing the current order.
What are the qualifications?
- There is a current child support order between you and your child(ren)’s other parent.
- Things have changed so much that the current child support order should be changed.
- You and the other parent do not agree on what the child support payment should be.
