Child Support Modification: Is it Possible to Adjust the Payments?

Generally, it is the responsibility of the non-custodial parent to make child support payments to the custodial parent and is either pursuant to a judicially recognized stipulation between the parties or by court order after a hearing or trial. Child support may include unreimbursed medical costs and education for the children in common and may be established as a part of a divorce action, or if the parents were never married, in a support proceeding in Family Court.
