Will child support be automatically modified when the new law comes into effect on July 1, 2017?

The new law going into effect on July 1 does not automatically change the terms of child support and any agreement or order that is already in existence. The change in the law alone is not enough to warrant a change or modification of a judgment on this previous order. However, changes in circumstances aside from just the new law can make a case for changing a child support order. This would include any significant changes in income, finances, or perhaps the need of a child.
