As part of a normal divorce agreement, you and your former partner likely came to a child support agreement that was representative of your respective financial circumstances at the time. However, as commonly happens, both your own and your former partner’s financial circumstances may have changed since the time you made your initial agreement. As such, it may become necessary to increase the child support payments that you or your former partner makes as a means to accommodate any adjustment of circumstances that may have occurred.
Situations Which Might Necessitate Increased Child Support Payments
After a divorce agreement has been reached, it may later become necessary to increase child support payments for one or more of the following reasons:
- Your child’s or children’s needs have increased
- Your former partner’s rate of income has significantly increased
- Your own rate of income has decreased
- You have recently become unemployed
