Federal laws have restricted judicial discretion (the sound judgment of the court) in modifying child support payment terms. Nevertheless, courts have retained the authority to alter child support payment orders upon providing proof of substantial modification of income and other assets of either the custodial parent (the parent with custody of the child; the parent receiving the child support payments) or the non-custodial parent (the parent making the child support payments.) Other modifications can be the result of a new circumstance for the child, such as hefty medical fees, requirement for special education, or additional unanticipated costs..
