How long does it take to get my child support order modified?
The process from start to finish can take 3-6 months to complete. The first step is to contact the Division of Child Support (DCS) and request a modification packet. Fully complete the packet and provide all requested documents including your recent paystubs and last two years tax returns with W2s. The more quickly you provide all the required information to DCS, the more quickly your case will be reviewed. DCS will contact the appropriate Prosecutor's Office to review and work the case if it meets certain criteria. It is crucial that you promptly return any requested documents requested by the Prosecutor's Office or your modification case may be declined. NOTE: The earliest starting date of any new order will be the date it is filed in the Superior Court. The law does not allow the starting date to go back to when you first asked DCS for help.
