Helping You Revisit Child Support Agreements

Even after a child support order is in place, it is important to remember that change in circumstances may necessitate a modification to this order. However, requesting a child support modification can be a difficult task in Michigan, which is why it is generally best to contact an experienced attorney in such situations.

If you need assistance seeking an adjustment to your child support order, Bergmans Law P.C. can provide knowledgeable legal guidance. At our firm, we have considerable experience dealing with child support issues, including modification requests.

Circumstances That May Warrant A Modification To Child Support

While you, as a parent, are typically only permitted to request of review of your child support order every three years, a petition for a modification may be filed any time if a substantial change in circumstances occurs. This may include:

  • A decrease to your income due to the loss of employment or a demotion
  • An increase to your income due to a new job or a promotion
  • A change in physical custody or the parenting time arrangement

Even though every modification request must be determined on a case-by-case basis, if you cannot show that your child support obligation will change by at least 10 percent or $50, whichever is greater, your request will likely be denied outright.
