How Do I Know if I Need a Modification?

In Georgia, there are several reasons that a parent would need to adjust their child support agreement. To petition for a modification of child support, there must be a substantial change in circumstances, or a specified amount of time passed. Some reasons for a child support modification include but are not limited to:

New Expenses
As children get older, their expenses often fluctuate. Things like childcare and education, transportation, clothing, and healthcare expenses might require you to modify your child support agreement.

Change in Circumstances
There are many examples of a change in circumstances that may warrant a modification of child support. Some examples are:

  1. Relocation of either parent
  2. Job loss
  3. Job promotion
  4. Additional children
  5. Change in visitation/custody
