TO CHANGE (MODIFY) CHILD SUPPORT BY THE SIMPLIFIED PROCESS ("Simplified Mod")
ATTENTION: You may use the forms on this page if the following factors apply to your situation:
  • You have a Maricopa County child support order and you believe the amount you pay or receive should be changed, AND,
  • You have completed a "Parent's Worksheet for Child Support" and the result for Item 35 is different from the amount of your current order by at least 15%, OR
  • You want to assign responsibility or change who is responsible for medical insurance. A modification of the medical assignment or responsibility does not need to vary by 15% or more from the existing child support amount. Typically, this procedure is used when there has been a change in the income of the parent(s), OR
  • There are two or more children and support is no longer owed for one child but is still owed for others.
    Typically, this procedure is used when there has been a change in the income of the parent(s).
DO NOT USE THESE FORMS:
  • To change spousal support/maintenance (alimony);
  • If your order is from a court outside this county (unless an attorney has advised you to);
  • If the amount of the change in the order is not at least 15%;
  • 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.
