’Tis the Tax and Support Modification Season

Tax season is over, so it is now time for all child and spousal support orders to be reviewed. In every case in which a Judgment has been entered and support ordered, each party has a right to request financial information from their former spouse. This is often done as a precursor to a modification of support proceeding. So, now that tax returns have been prepared and last years’ income information is readily available, it is wise to exchange financial information and determine if the current child and spousal support orders are still appropriate. If not, then a modification of those orders should be considered.
