Chapter 11: ANNULMENT AND DIVORCE
15 V.S.A. § 668. Modification of order
§ 668. Modification of order
(a) On motion of either parent or any other person to whom custody or parental rights and responsibilities have previously been granted, and upon a showing of real, substantial and unanticipated change of circumstances, the court may annul, vary or modify an order made under this subchapter if it is in the best interests of the child, whether or not the order is based upon a stipulation or agreement.
(b) Whenever a judgment for physical responsibility is modified, the court shall order a child support modification hearing to be set and notice to be given to the parties. Unless good cause is shown to the contrary, the court shall simultaneously issue a temporary order pending the modification hearing, if adjustments to those portions of any existing child support order or wage withholding order that pertain to any child affected by the modification are necessary to assure that support and wages are paid in amounts proportional to the modified allocation of responsibility between the parties. (Added 1985, No. 181 (Adj. Sess.), § 6; amended 2011, No. 119 (Adj. Sess.), § 7.)
