Child support modification is exactly the same tenet you have to wait one year from the prior order being rendered and at that point, we look at any change of circumstances. The courts are very wary if a person quits a job or takes a lesser paying job just because they don’t want to pay child support. So if someone is laid off or if there is a problem with the amount of the child support that’s been calculated then we will look at that and consider that but it has to be one year from the prior order.
