Surviving an Economic Downturn
Step 2: The Child Support Modification Calculator shows my order may qualify for a modification.
If the Child Support Modification Calculator shows that your order may qualify for a modification, take the following actions:
Print and fill out a request for review to request that your child support case be reviewed by your local child support office.
Mail the request for review to the child support office handling your case.
Important: Only the court can change your child support order. Completing a request for review does not guarantee your order will be modified.
When you request a review of your child support order, make sure that you...
continue to pay your court ordered child support — your ordered amount does not change until the court changes it.
provide all the information requested — missing information slows down the process.
show up to any appointments or court hearings that may be scheduled — if you fail to appear, the court or our office may not be able to complete the modification process.
keep in touch with your local child support office until a final decision has been made on your case.
If the Child Support Modification Calculator did not show that your order qualified for a modification, but you would still like to talk with someone about your case, contact your local child support office.
