  • Your ex-spouse may have gotten remarried, ending the need for spousal support.
  • You may have accepted a job in another state and need to relocate with your children.
  • You lost your job and can’t make payments on your current child support order.
  • Your ex-spouse became incapacitated or unable to take care of your children due to medical reasons
  • You believe your child is in danger while in the other parent’s custody due to domestic violence, drug abuse, tec.
