Child support is based primarily on the parties gross incomes and the overnight stays of each parent exercise with the child(ren). There are several different things that can change your child support obligation, first being a substantial change in income.

As children grow and circumstances change often the parenting plans need to change as well. The childís best interest is always the court's primary concern and if a circumstance is no longer in a childís best interest then it may meet the standard for a modification.

Sometimes there is a shift in the needs of a child or a parent who has a different job and cannot be home as much with the child, this is not uncommon in Orlando, FL. If there is a substantial, material and unanticipated change in circumstance that affects the best interest of the child then filing a supplemental petition to modify may be justified in order to change the parenting plan.
