Making Child Support Modifications

While most parents have no problem supporting the health and well-being of their children, the terms of court-ordered payments may not always fit changing circumstances. A modification in child support payments can be either an increase or decrease in the amount, as well as a change in the terms of the payments.

There are many valid reasons to modify a child support order, including:

  • The income of either parent has changed
  • Either parent has lost their job
  • Either parent has been imprisoned
  • The amount of time the child spends with each parent has changed
  • The needs of the child have changed

How to Modify Alimony in California

In calculating alimony payments, the court will generally look at factors that influence the earning potential of each spouse. Recent case law has implied that spousal support payments are designed to be temporary, and many judgments will require the receiver to become reasonably self-sufficient within a specified period of time.

If you’ve experienced any major changes to your financial circumstances, including having a child, losing your job, imprisonment, and others, you may be eligible for a modification to your court ordered alimony payments. Likewise, if the supported spouse has increased their income, entered into a new romantic relationship, or experienced any other change in circumstances that makes them more self-sufficient, you may be able to reduce or eliminate your support payments.
