- As the custodial parent, you may have additional expenses for medical or day care. You may have lost your job or been forced to take a lower-paying job. You may be required to relocate to keep your existing job or take a better one. To cover expenses, you might need additional support.
- You may also seek additional support because the noncustodial parent has had a substantial increase in financial resources, whether through a promotion, a new job, an inheritance, a gift, or even a lottery winning.
- As a noncustodial parent, you may seek a modification for a decrease in payments temporarily when your income has decreased dramatically, through the loss of a job or a job reassignment. You may also be asked to move for work.
- Either parent can request a change in custody or visitation based on abuse, neglect, or parental incompetence. This customarily involves supervised visits.
