A: The office of child support services only reviews once every THREE years. If you want to have it revised in two years you will have to go through a private attorney. Contact our office to schedule a consultation. We would be happy to help.

A: You don't have to wait two years. That is just the time frame given by child support services before they will do it. As long as there has been a substantial change in any of the factors regarding child support, you may ask for a modification immediately.
