Can child support be modified?

Yes, but the party seeking the modification must prove there has been a substantial change of circumstances when comparing the circumstances that existed at the time of the prior child support order to those that exist when the modification is sought. If the prior child support order is more than three years old and if the new child support amount, when applying the guidelines, is at least 15% more or less than the prior order, that alone is sufficient for a modification.
