Family Code - FAM
CHAPTER 6 - Modification,Termination, or Set Aside of Support Orders
ARTICLE 3 - Simplified Procedure for Modification of Support Order
Section 3680.

Universal Citation: CA Fam Code § 3680 (2017)

(a) The Legislature finds and declares the following:

(1) There is currently no simple method available to parents to quickly modify their support orders when circumstances warrant a change in the amount of support.

(2) The lack of a simple method for parents to use to modify support orders has led to orders in which the amount of support ordered is inappropriate based on the parents’ financial circumstances.

(3) Parents should not have to incur significant costs or experience significant delays in obtaining an appropriate support order.

(b) Therefore, it is the intent of the Legislature that the Judicial Council adopt rules of court and forms for a simplified method to modify support orders. This simplified method should be designed to be used by parents who are not represented by counsel.
