New Motion to Modify Child Support and/or Spousal Maintenance Interactive Interview on LawHelpMN.org

Legal Services State Support is excited to announce a brand new interactive interview available online through LawHelpMN.org. Originally suggested for development by the Volunteer Attorney Program in Duluth, the interview was created by Jenny Singleton, Legal/Technology Projects Manager at State Support, with assistance from Central Minnesota Legal Services, and LSC's Technology Initiative Grant Program. The free online interview is for those who already have an existing child support or spousal maintenance order, and allows them to fill out the paperwork needed to ask the court to change the amount of child support or spousal maintenance. Users can ask the court to change basic child support, medical support, child care support, overdue payments (arrearages), and/or spousal maintenance. The interview takes users step-by-step through all the information they will need to submit to the court in order to request changes.  The interview then compiles the user’s information to create the forms they will need to file with the court. To access the new interview, visit LawHelpMN.org. Other interactive interviews and forms are available on LawHelpMN.org/FormHelper.

 The do-it-yourself interview explains the basics of child support/spousal maintenance modification and asks the user a series of questions about his or her case.
