IMPORTANT: before watching the video linked below you should:
STEP 1: Get a copy of your current child support order. The order may be from a Child Support Case, Paternity Case, or your Divorce.

Visit the courthouse where your case is filed to buy a copy or contact Court Administration to ask them to mail you a copy.
STEP 2: Download and print the forms packet for the Motion to Modify Child Support. This video goes over each form in the packet for people filing in the Expedited Process. However, this video may still be helpful for the District Court Process as well.
