Jupiter Child Support Modification

A parent paying child support may find that his or her circumstances have changed and he or she is no longer able to meet the current child support payments. Alternatively, the non-paying parent may feel that the paying parent isn’t paying enough child support to meet the children’s ongoing needs.

Regardless of your situation, George E. Gelb can help. To modify a child support order, Florida courts require a showing of a “substantial change in circumstances” that is long-term or continuous, and that a modification of child support is in the children’s best interests. Following are a few of the ways to demonstrate a substantial change in circumstances:

  • a significant change in income or financial status of either party
  • a change in health insurance availability
  • a child becomes emancipated
