A change in a financial circumstance can be either an increase or decrease in income. Seeking to modify child support in the case of increased financial income may be the result of one parent receiving a significant promotion or a new, higher-paying job. Child support can also be modified when one parent gains a large inheritance, or if a parent remarries and the new spouse significantly increases the income of the household. Modifying child support for the instance of a sudden decrease in income may happen if the parent involuntarily loses employment unexpectedly or becomes disabled.
