You can make a change to a child support agreement in New Jersey. Changes may be desired when circumstances have changed for one or both parents. In most cases, the circumstantial changes will be linked to the above-mentioned factors.
As an example of changes that can be made, consider the case of two parents who have a joint child custody agreement. The custodial parent lost their job and this could be valid grounds for a modification. The custodial parent would then pay less towards the support of their child/children.
To successfully make changes to an existing child custody agreement, the parents involved must petition family courts in New Jersey for a hearing. Proof of the changes in circumstances must then be offered.
