Situations in which a child support modification may be warranted

The  noncustodial parent either loses his or her job or gets a promotion,  has another child or receives a big inheritance. Or maybe the shared  child starts starts attending a better school or begins participating in  more expensive extracurricular activities. These are all examples of  situations in which one or both parents may wish to see out  modifications to a child support agreement.

Child support is  intended to replicate the level of financial report would have been  available to them to cover their expenses had his or her parents never  separated. A lot of different factors shape how much the custodial  parent is awarded to take care of their child, including how much income  each party receives and how many other kids a parent has to support.
