Understanding the Process
Hi there, I’m Jay Bills, the Okmulgee attorney. I’m here today to talk about modifying your child support and how long you must wait to file a motion to modify your child support.
Child support is set in many types of cases, including orders of divorce, orders of paternity, and even adoptions and guardianships that contain an order to pay child support. There may come a time when child support needs to be modified by either the obligor (the person paying the child support) or the obligee (the person receiving the child support).
There are various factors that may warrant a modification of child support. These factors can include changes in income, whether it has increased or decreased, as well as changes in the child’s needs for educational purposes or healthcare necessities. Additionally, changes in the child’s expenses due to their age or location can also be considered.
When Can You Modify Child Support?
The good news is that there is no minimum time set for modifying child support in Oklahoma, as long as all the other qualifying factors are met. If there have been changes since your child support was initially set, it may be beneficial to explore the option of modifying it.
If you believe that your circumstances have changed and that a modification of child support is necessary, it is important to seek legal guidance. Modifying child support can be a complex process, and having an experienced attorney by your side can help ensure that your rights and the best interests of your child are protected.
