My ex and I got a divorce on May 17th of 2019. He is already asking to modify child support and filed with the courts January 9th 2020. He hasn't changed jobs or made less. Is this possible so soon?
It is only possible if there has been a financial change of 20% or more. If he filed a motion to modify, you are able to file an opposition.
Responses are for general information purposes only, and are based on the extremely limited facts given. A consultation with an attorney experienced in the area of law(s) indicated in the question is highly recommended. Information and advice given here should not be relied upon for any final action or decision, as the information is limited by its nature to the question asked and the fact(s) presented in that question. THIS RESPONSE DOES NOT CREATE AN ATTORNEY/CLIENT RELATIONSHIP, particularly considering that the names of the parties are unknown.
It depends. Either parent can ask for an automatic review of the child support orders every 3 years pursuant to Nevada statute. But, you can always come back to court and ask for a modification if there is a change in circumstances. A change in circumstances is pretty open-ended. But, as far as income is concerned, it has to be a 20% change either up or down for either parent to qualify as a change in circumstances. So, short answer is, if either of your income has changed up or down by more than 20% that would be sufficient to go back to court. Or if there's some other significant change in circumstances such as new expenses for the child.
