Child support — Motion to modify — Retroactive application
Child support and alimony obligations may be modified from time to time depending on a change of circumstances. A spouse, receiving financial support from the payor spouse, may seek an upward modification of the monthly support retroactive to a
certain date, to the extent permitted by law. The matter before us presents the opposite scenario. This case involves a request, by the payor spouse, to make a downward modification of his monthly support obligation retroactive to a particular date.
