Reasons To Change Your Child Support Or Parenting Time Arrangement

The original agreement was put into place because the court determined it was in the best interest of the child. Therefore, changing this plan can be difficult. You need to be able to show that there were significant changes that require the order to be re-examined.

There are many reasons you may want to modify your current agreement. Some common reasons for changing a child support or parenting time arrangements are:

  • Loss of a job
  • Acquiring a new job
  • Needing to move out of state with the child
  • Remarriage
