How do I request a child support review?
How Do I Request a Review?
If you have an active/open child support case, you can submit an official Request for Review of your court-ordered amount.
You must download, complete, and mail the “Request for Review” form to the Child Support Division.
How do you ask for more child support?
To ask for a court hearing to change your existing child support order:
- Fill out your court forms.
- Have your forms reviewed.
- Make at least 2 copies of all your forms.
- File your forms with the court clerk.
- Get your court date.
- Serve your papers on the other parent (and the LCSA if involved)
- File your proof of service.
How do I get my child support reduced?
To lower your payments, you will need to file a motion in court to modify your child support payments. You will need to file this motion in the court that issued the initial child support order. Most courts have pre-printed “fill in the blank” motion forms. You can check with the court clerk to see if they have a form.
Does child support go up with age?
The technical answer is no, as a child increases in age child support does not increase with it. However, there are circumstances in which the amount of child support being paid monthly can increase.
