When can you change child support in California?

Child support modifications can only be made if the parent requesting the change is able to show a “change in circumstance,” which would warrant and justify alterations to their existing child support arrangement. Our family lawyers can determine the best way to present the evidence before a judge to secure a favorable outcome.

Situations in which a person can request a change in an existing child support order:

  • A change in income
  • If one parent is incarcerated
  • If one parent loses his or her job
  • The child’s needs have changed
  • A parent has become critically ill
  • The child's needs have changed, such as in the area of child care, education, health care, etc.
  • There has been a change in the state's child support laws

Our team can review your current situation to help you determine if your change merits a modification in the eyes of the law. We have extensive knowledge of child support laws and how they are applied.
