Child Support Modifications

Modifying Child Support Orders

Many people reach a point at which child support orders that once made perfect sense are no longer reasonable due to changing family circumstances. Thankfully, child support orders can be modified if new circumstances require it.

In changing circumstances, the Michigan child support formula still applies. New child support payments will be based on the current needs of the minor children and the resources of the parents. Depending on the situation, deviation from the formula may be necessary.

An experienced lawyer is a valuable source of information, guidance and advocacy when seeking to change child support orders. At the law offices of Marrs & Terry, PLLC, we have spent more than a decade providing guidance to clients throughout Michigan. Contact our law firm online or call 734-663-0555.

Have Your Circumstance Changed? So Can Your Child Support.

Changes to child support orders require a significant change in circumstances. Some examples of reasons to seek a change include:

  • One parent has changed jobs, been promoted or lost a job and has experienced a substantial change of income because of it.
  • The custodial parent has remarried and there is now additional household income.
  • The child’s needs have changed with age and childcare is no longer needed or college expenses need to be covered.

We will carefully review your case to make certain you are eligible for a change in child support orders. If you are, we will guide you down the most effective path of either increasing or decreasing child support payments.
