A Petition to Modify Child Support can be instituted by either party (payor or payee of the child support obligation). Common reasons for a modification of child support include but are not limited to:
- Significant change in income
- Significant change in circumstances
- Relocation of parties
- Parenting time change
- Serious illness
Either party should not unilaterally change their child support amount without a proper court order. This may cause numerous issues for both parties down the road. For this reason, the Superior Court has adopted a formal procedure in the determination of whether a modification of child support is appropriate. The Modification Attorneys at Reppucci & Roeder Law Firm are here to protect you and your family’s best interests during all stages of this process.
