How to Enforce or Modify Child Support

Child support orders are not permanent. You can ask the court to modify your child support if there has been a “significant change in circumstance.” This can include, but is not limited to:

  • Job loss
  • Pay cuts
  • Remarriage of the custodial parent

You should also ask the court to enforce a child support order if the non-custodial parent has fallen behind on payments and is showing no effort to pay what is due. Our child support lawyers can help you enforce or modify child support anywhere in California.
