Family Law judgments can be modified depending upon the nature of the award in the judgment. Child support and alimony awards are subject to modifications. To obtain a modification of child support or alimony in a Final Judgment, the person seeking the modification is required to file a Supplemental Petition for Modification. This Supplemental Petition is required to be served upon the opposing party.
In order to prevail in a modification action, the person seeking the modification must prove that a substantial change in circumstances has occurred since the judgment was entered. The change in circumstances must be permanent, involuntary, unanticipated material. If the Supplemental Petition for Modification is granted, the increase in child support or alimony could be awarded retroactively to the date the Supplemental Petition for Modification is filed.
