Yes. There are two circumstances that might result in a child support modification request being denied by the court. (1) A denial may occur when there has not been a big enough change in a parent’s financial circumstances. This typically occurs when a change in one parent’s income is not sufficient enough to change the existing child support order by 10%. (2) A denial may occur when the existing child support order provides that neither parent is obligation to pay child support to the other. However, a modification may occur if the child support order states that the amount is set at zero (instead of stating none at all). This minor wording difference can have a huge legal impact.
