Modification of Orders
Generally, upon establishing a "change in circumstances" either parent may seek to modify an existing court order. Whether a particular event qualifies as a change in circumstances is a matter for court determination. Recently it has been held that with respect to spousal support, a court order terminating child support does not constitute a change in circumstances warranting an increase in spousal support. (Marriage of Lautsbaugh, C.A.2nd, No. B120546, June 10, 1999, 99 D.A.R. 5841).
