Can You Change Child Support Payment Amounts By Moving to a Different State?

Updated: 2020-06-23 by
Child support payment amounts may vary wildly from state to state. But you can't just move to change your payment.

A 2019 study showed that child support payment amounts vary dramatically from state to state. A parent in one state may pay or receive up to three times as much as a parent in an identical situation who lives in another state—and the differences don’t depend on cost of living.

Given this, a parent might reasonably wonder whether it would be possible to get a lot more child support—or pay a lot less—by moving to the state next door. For better or worse, it’s not that easy.
