Can a divorce decree be modified?
Question Details: Regarding child support.
A divorce decree can be modified. Child support can be modified for changed circumstances such as a change in income. You will need to file with the court an Order to Show Cause to have a hearing on this issue. Call the court clerk to schedule the hearing. State the date, time, and department of the hearing on the Order to Show Cause. File your declaration signed under penalty of perjury stating the facts supporting your request for modification of child support. File any other supporting documents and a proof of service with the court. Then mail a copy of all these court-filed documents to your ex to provide your ex with notice of the hearing. The proof of service (court form) verifies the date of mailing.
Prior to filing your documents with the court, ask the court clerk if any other documents are required for a modification of child support because the required documents may vary from state to state.
