Rhode Island Child Support Law : Motions to Modify Child Support by a Rhode Island Family Lawyer

This article explains how Rhode Island Child Support is modified  and what constitutes a change in circumstances to warrant a modification of child support. Article written By a Rhode Island Divorce and Family law lawyer

How is Child support modified in Rhode Island divorce and family law cases?

Child support in Rhode Island is not automatically modified when there is a change in circumstances. The parent must file a motion to modify child support. When a motion for modification of child support is filed a court date will be set by the clerk of the Rhode Island Family Court. In order to modify child support there must be a substantial change in circumstances.  Under RI Law, a new child support amount does not run retroactive to when the circumstances actually changed! The new child support order should run retroactive to the date of the filing of the motion. Article by  Rhode Island Attorney David Slepkow (401-437-1100)
