Modifying a California child support order

Child support orders can be modified after they have been signed by a judge if there has been a change in the circumstances of one or both parents. Examples of changes that would warrant a modification include an increase or decrease in income, if the supporting parent has become disabled or incarcerated, the party requiring support has remarried or had a child in another relationship, the needs of the child have changed, or the children have started college. A change may also occur if circumstances arise so that one parent can no longer be the custodial parent and custody is also changed.

The basic steps of the divorce process

In California, as in most all states, the steps for obtaining a divorce are generally the same. Once a divorce proceeding has been instituted, it moves through the process towards dissolving the marriage on a specific time table set by law. Once the process moves through the basic steps and all lawful requirements have been met, an order of dissolution is entered, and the marriage is dissolved.
