TO CHANGE (MODIFY) CHILD SUPPORT BY THE STANDARD PROCESS

You have a child support order from Maricopa County and believe the amount of child support should be changed because there has been a substantial and continuing change in your circumstances.

DO NOT USE THESE FORMS:
  • To change spousal maintenance/support (alimony);
  • If your order is from a court outside this county (unless an attorney has advised you to);
  • If the reason you are requesting the change is because the living arrangements of the child(ren) have changed but the court order about Legal Decision Making (Custody) and parenting time has not.
This packet contains court forms and instructions about changing (modifying) a child support order by the standard process. Be sure the documents are in the following order:

Packets contain ALL forms and ALL instructions needed for this process. Where there are separate packets for Instructions and Forms, get BOTH packets.
