Modification/review process

The Review process, also known as the Modification process, is the method by which the child support obligation is reviewed to reflect the current financial situation of both parties.  The Review process takes several months to complete from the initial request to final order.

What you need to know

Specified Social Security Benefits may terminate the child support obligation (Example:  Permanent Disability).  Certain types of Social Security Benefits may or may not be counted as income. Interstate cases may have different criteria; be sure to mention that one or both parties on the order reside out of state when requesting a review. Review may be terminated if requested information is not returned by the specified date.
