Chapter 14-09. Parent and Child

back to top14-09-08.8. Motion for amendment of child support order--How made--Presumption when obligor's income unknown

1. Upon a determination by the child support agency, made under section 14-09-08.4, that it may or must seek amendment of a child support order, the child support agency may file and serve a motion and supporting documents.

2. The court may determine the motion based upon the files, records, and evidence received in consideration of the motion. If the child support agency certifies that, despite diligent efforts to secure reliable information concerning the obligor's income, the obligor has not produced such information, and if the obligor provides the court with no reliable evidence concerning the obligor's income, it is presumed that the obligor's income has increased at the rate of ten percent per year since the child support order was entered or last modified.
