When are modifications permitted?

The state of Indiana takes child support very seriously. These calculations are made with the best interests of the children in mind and for a modification to be approved, ample reason must be given.

Generally speaking, there are two scenarios in which a modification of child support can be permitted: when there is a significant and continuing change in the paying parent's circumstances or when a standing child support order is at least 20% lower or 20% higher than required by state law.

Some common factors that constitute a change in circumstances:

  • Loss of employment
  • Serious illness of a parent or child
  • Remarriage of the custodial parent
  • A significant change in the child's needs
  • A significant change in the cost of living
  • A change in the custody arrangement
