A) There are three ways to change a child support order.
You can file court papers on your own, either
a Complaint for Modification or
a Joint Petition/Motion to Change a Judgment/Temporary Order
You do not need the Department of Revenue to file a complaint for you. You can ask the “Lawyer for the Day” at the courthouse to help you fill out the forms.
You can ask the Department of Revenue Child Support Enforcement (DOR/CSE) to file a Complaint for Modification for you.
DOR/CSE has an application form for you to use to apply for their help.
You can ask the DOR to file a complaint for you if you do not understand how to file a complaint or if you do not feel safe. If you want to keep your address secret, tell them this.
Remember that the DOR:
can take a long time to process your paperwork;
cannot file a complaint for you if your child is more than17 ½ years old; and
is not your lawyer. The DOR may not handle your case the way you would like.
A lawyer can prepare and file your court papers.
A lawyer can prepare and file your court papers. A lawyer can also represent you in court. You might choose to get a lawyer if you think that the lawyer will do a better job than you in court. Since DOR is not your lawyer when they handle your case, you might decide to get your own lawyer for that reason.
