Actually, I am asking this question for a friend. Maybe someone can help?

She is in a situation where she has to ask for an increase. Without getting into the long drawn out story, there has been a substantial change of financial circumstance. The problem is, she is broke and does not have the money to file with the court to ask for a modification. Does anyone know if there is anything else she can do? Can CS enforcement agency help her? or is she just out of luck?

You don't need a lawyer or anything for child support modification... Every 2-3 years a modification request can be ads ith the attorney general's office (child support office). It's free... Doesn't cost anything to request it.

In my state the CSE will help with CS modification. I think they will file everything, but you have to open a case with them (CS does not automatically go thru the CSE in my state; I think it does in other states).

My advise is for her to call the CSE and specifically ask what they can do to help her.
