Modification of Child Support Orders in North Carolina: The ‘Changed Circumstances’ Requirement


Abstract:
North Carolina law recognizes the ever-changing nature of the circumstances on which a child custody or support orders are based. Therefore, the court has the authority to modify provisions of a custody or support order within limits. A person seeking to modify an order has the burden to prove sufficient changes in circumstances in order to justify changes in respect to custody, visitation, or support.
