Modifying Child Support

Modifying Child Support

Many parents with a custody and parenting plan already in place eventually run across life changes, professional changes, personal lifestyle adjustments, etc. that lead them to wonder about the possibility of modifying child support. Child support can be changed or modified, but there are limitations as to when and why. One or both parents may modify their child support when they can show a changed circumstance that is both substantial and continuing.

What Are Some Examples of Circumstances that may be Considered Substantial and Continuing?

  • The addition of health insurance coverage or change in premium.
  • A change in the availability of health insurance coverage.
  • Changing employers.
  • Disability.
  • Notable increase to income.
  • Notable decrease to income.
  • The birth or adoption of another child.
  • Incarceration.

If any of the above listed situations apply to your case, you can petition the Court to have your Arizona child support amount changed or possibly terminated entirely.
