Modification of Child Welfare Cases

A child support order may be modified upon a material change in circumstance. Currently those circumstances include:

  • Change in custody
  • Addition of a new child
  • Change in the amount of the parents’ income resulting in a change of the computed child support by at least 20% (increase or decrease)

If the amount is no longer appropriate, a modification may be addressed in juvenile court, administrative court, or district court depending on which venue is correct.
