Modification of Child Support Orders
Either parent or the CSEU can file a petition in Family Court to request a modification (change) to an existing child support order. The modification petition should be based on the fact that either the custodial or non-custodial parent's circumstances have materially changed (e.g., change in income, or other changes in circumstances).
The New York State child support program provides custodial parents with assistance in obtaining financial support and medical insurance coverage for their children by locating parents, establishing paternity, establishing support orders, and collecting and distributing child support payments. This information changes periodically. Visit the www.newyorkchildsupport.com for up-to-date information.
