Child Support Modifications. Well, much like custody, child support can be modified. Child support is determined based on the income of the respective parties. And also, it’s adjusted based on how many overnights the child spends in each person’s care, and if you have enough overnights, you do get a parenting time adjustment and that can reduce your child support liability.
Now, if your income changes, or if you have some other circumstances that would justify the court adjusting the child support payment, then this is a situation where you would file a motion to modify child support, and you would want to, again, get a good lawyer involved who can help you out with that because there are some pitfalls in the process if you don’t do it right.
