Post-Decree Modification in Minnesota
Generally speaking, a party may motion to modify a previously issued support order if there has been a “substantial change” in the parties’ circumstances making the existing order’s award unreasonable. This will normally result from a substantial change in income of one or both parties, or a substantial change in the living situation of one or both parties.
Common circumstantial changes may include:
· Substantial changes in living costs
· Unforeseen medical costs
· Change to amount of benefits received
· Substantial change in income
· Substantial change in childcare costs
· Changes in the law
· Emancipation of a child
