Change in Circumstances
After a final judgment of paternity or divorce is entered such an order can be modified if there has been a material change in the circumstances of the parties or their children. Typically, if either parent suffers a job loss or decrease in compensation, there may be a basis for requesting a child support adjustment. If the situation changes regarding time sharing, the Court can entertain a supplemental petition to change custody or time sharing arrangements within the parenting plan.
