Question: I've been divorced since 2002 and in our Divorced Decree he will pay $650 per month on child support. My ex husband is in the military and has been stationed in Japan. When we got divorced he is only 2nd class in the Navy and now master chief. I never asked for increased of child support but is it possible to get my child support modify after all this year's of the amount he had been giving me?

Answer:

According to DES

 Both custodial and noncustodial parents can request a modification of their existing child support order when there has been a significant and continuing change within the household, such as adding or changing health insurance, a loss of a job, disability, or an increase or decrease in income for either parent.https://www.azdes.gov/az_child_support/paying_modifying.aspx
