Grounds for Modifying Child Support

What many parents do not realize is that once their child support obligation has been officially ordered by the court, that obligation can be changed. As divorced parents can attest, their lives can change significantly as the years go by.

Parents move on with their lives, they get new jobs, new spouses, they relocate, sometimes their children's needs increase, parents lose their jobs, or they get injured or ill. Any of these situations may be considered a "significant change in circumstances," and therefore warrant a child support modification.

Child support in Texas can be modified when:

  • There has been a substantial change in circumstances for either party.
  • The needs of the child has changed.
  • It has been at least three years since the last child support order was calculated under the state's child support guidelines, and the new calculated amount under the child support guidelines differs by 20%, or $100.00 from the current support obligation.

Contact Mathur Law Offices, P.C. for Help

Child support payments are not minor issues; whether you are on the paying end or the receiving end, it is vital that your child support accurately reflect your situation and your child's needs. If you are the paying parent, keep in mind that even if you lose your job or the other parent is denying you visitation, it does not mean that you can automatically reduce your payments or stop paying altogether.

The only way that you can change your child support payments is to petition the court for a modification, thus time is of the essence if you want to prevent arrearages from accruing. The best way to ensure your interests are protected, is to contact a Dallas divorce lawyer from our firm for help.
