How do I modify my child support order?

Child support modifications may be a significant concern for many parents who have a child support order as the circumstances of life change following a divorce or the establishment of an initial child support order. Parents may wonder if a child support modification is possible, under what circumstances it might be possible and how they can request a child support modification. Under both federal and state laws, individuals who have a child support order have the right to request a review of their child support order. The Office of Recovery Services/Child Support Services in Utah conducts the review and the child support amount can go up or down.
