Grounds for a Modification
There are many instances in which a modification of a court order may be necessary. Some common changes in which people often seek modifications:
A child who is 12 years of age or older has expressed a desire to live with the other parent and the change is in the child’s best interest
3 years have passed and the person receiving child support Is entitled to an increase of more than 20 percent or $100.
The parent who primarily cares for the child wishes to relocate to a different city or state, and thus, wishes to change or eliminate the geographic restriction.
