Modifying Maine Child Support

In the state of Maine, the Division of Support Enforcement & Recovery (DSER) enforces child support orders and assists in the modification process. Sometimes, child support orders need to be modified to reflect changes in either parent's lifestyle and their ability to provide financial support for their child. Additionally, the needs of the child may change over time and the support order may need to be modified accordingly.

In order to modify your child support order, you need to request an order review from the Case Review Unit. The Case Review Unit will then obtain necessary information from both parents, including financial information and expenses for the child.

If your child support order is less than three years old, it can't be increased or decreased unless the change in the amount of child support is 15% or greater. Therefore, you can't modify your child support order unless there is a significant change.

In addition to assisting with support order modification, the DSER also offers many other services to eligible parents:

  • Establishing paternity
  • Establishing support orders
  • Locating non-custodial parents
  • Enforcing medical support and obtaining medical expense reimbursement
  • Processing and distributing child support payments
  • Reviewing and modifying child support orders
