Reasons to Qualify for a Modification/Review and Adjustment:
How to Request a Review and Adjustment
Contact the Champaign County CSEA to obtain and complete the JFS 1849 form or download the Child Support Review & Adjustment request.
Review and adjustment may be terminated if requested information is not returned by the requesting party by the specified date.
If the order is a minimum $50.00 per month, the modification can be done at any time if conditions have changed.
If the parties are seeking health insurance, the modification can be done at any time to incorporate the cost of health insurance.
A modification can be accepted at any point prior to the child being emancipated (18 or graduated from high school, but not past 19), but not during the emancipation process. However, when there are still minor children on the case, a review can be requested after the emancipation of an older child.
Thirty percent (30%) change in Income
If reason for the modification request is a 30% change in income, it must be verified. If the requestor is claiming a 30% change in income, he/she must provide proof of the change at the time the request is made. The change also must have lasted at least six months for this request.
Possible Results of Review
If there is a change as a result of the modification, the new amount will commence the first day of the month after the modification was scheduled for review.
CSEA cannot predict the result of your review and adjustment, and parties take the chance of any of the above-mentioned results occurring.
