In many child support situations, it may be necessary to obtain a modification of the support order. For instance, if a parent is required to make monthly maintenance payments for their child after a divorce, but they lose their job and are no longer able to afford the payments, a modification could reduce the amount of the payments or cancel them altogether. Laws regarding child support modifications are found in K.S.A. § 12-3005, where it states that such modifications must be made within three years of the original order (or previous modification) and that the order must go into effect at least one month after the request for modification.
