Highlight

The effective date for a modification of child support depends upon the facts of each case. The modification generally should be made effective from the date of the motion to modify, absent good reason to set some other date.
If the court finds by clear and convincing evidence that a child is of sufficient maturity to make a sound judgment, the court may give substantial weight to the preference of the mature child. The maturity of the child is a factually driven issue and will depend on the facts and circumstances of the case.
