When are child support orders eligible for review?

As a non-custodial parent, all sorts of challenges may be on your plate. Family law issues of all kinds can be difficult to work through, but those involving a child are often especially tough. In addition to the emotional aspects of family law matters involving children, financial matters may arise as well. For example, you might be having a hard time paying child support each month and are wondering whether or not your child support order is eligible for review. It is essential to find answers to any of your family law questions and avoid falling behind on your child support, which can bring all sorts of serious consequences.

According to the Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services, child support orders are eligible for modification reviews after three years. However, a child support order may also be eligible for review in the event that significant changes have taken place, such as a major change in the payer's income or the child's needs. Prior to the submission of a child support modification case, another review is necessary, during which the employment status of the non-custodial parent and other relevant information will be assessed.

Navigating through a child support modification review can be tricky for some parents, especially if they are unsure of their rights or have no idea of what to expect. However, by reviewing legal information related to this aspect of family law, some may feel less anxiety and have more confidence regarding their case. Remember, this is not legal counsel.
