Months or years after a divorce, child custody hearings, and child support proceedings, substantial life changes can occur. This is when it may be appropriate to revisit court-mandated arrangements and determine whether they need to be updated. As the goal of child support is to ensure that a child's needs are met and that the child benefits from both parents' finances, both parents should review any necessary changes to ensure that their child is getting the best of what the family can offer.

What circumstances are grounds for child support modification?

In the event of significant, ongoing, and unexpected changes in a parent's or child's life, child support can and should be adjusted.

The following are examples of what the state of Florida considers valid changes that would require modification:

  • Loss of or decrease in employment
  • End of the child's private schooling (under age 18)
  • Long-term illness or injury for a parent or the child
  • Increasing costs of care for the child (e.g., health insurance, schooling, transportation, etc.)
  • Substantial increase or decrease in a parent's income

These changes must have a lasting effect on the family's circumstances for one year or more in order to constitute child support modification. Modification can only go into effect on the date the action was filed in court, meaning that any missed payments will still be owed under the original court order.
