Forms for Requesting Modification
NOTE: If the parents are NOT in agreement, please use all the forms in this packet, and follow the instructions carefully. If parents ARE in agreement, you will NOT need the Order to Show Cause Re: Modification of Judgment, nor will you need the Uniform Support Declaration. Additionally, as long as both parties have signed the Supplemental Judgment, you may file all the forms together, and will not need to complete the service step.
Response to Modification Request
If the other parent asks the court to change the custody, parenting time and/or child support provisions in a judgment, and you do not agree with ALL of the requested changes, you must "respond" in WRITING by the deadline specified in the "Order to Show Cause" served upon you; typically within 30 days. A response allows you to object to the changes and state facts telling the court the reasons you disagree.
