Under California State Family Law, child support may be periodically adjusted to account for changes in circumstances between the parties in a child support modification action. Child support obligations may be modified based on a number of factors including, changes in visitation that reflects a change in the time share or changes in the income of one or both parties, or because one child is now age 18 or hardships authorized by statute and law and for which you qualify.
