TO CHANGE (MODIFY) CURRENT CHILD SUPPORT BY AGREEMENT
ATTENTION: You may use the forms on this page if the following factors apply to your situation:
  • You have a current "Child Support Order" that was entered in Maricopa County,
  • You wish to modify the Order,
  • ALL parties AGREE to modify the Order,
  • You have the notarized signatures of all parties on the Agreement, AND
  • If either party is using the child support collection or enforcement services of the State, you also have the signature of the Attorney General's representative from DCSS, the Division of Child Support Services.
  • You understand these forms do not deal with arrears (back support).

DO NOT USE THESE FORMS IF...

  • The other party will not sign the agreement (in front of a notary or Court Clerk).
  • You want to modify arrears (money owed for overdue support).
  • 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 visitation has not.
