This answer was rated:

yes, l would like to know if l could change my child support since my ex wil not take our son anymore starting June 1, 2008. he is handicapped and is 19 years of age. He is still in school until he turns 21.
Do you mean that the ex no longer wants custody of the son?

So is custody going to be changed over to you?

Are you currently the parent who pays child support?

Although your son is handicapped, can he work or is he not able to earn a living?

Thanks.

no he more likely he won't be able to work. l'm not sure about if he will be able to earn a living.
Can you tell me if his income has changed?

Lastly, when was the last time you had a child support hearing?

Thanks.

yes, l know his income has changed.
not since we were divorced in 2000
Thank you for the clarification.

Yes, you can change your child support. In general child support reviews can be conducted every three to four years for adjustment in terms of the cost of living factors. Also, whenever income has changed, you are giving legal standing to petition the court for a review hearing. Lastly, when there is going to be a change in custody you can also petition for the court review as the living arrangements are going to change.

BotXXXXX XXXXXne, yes you can file for a change in child support.
