In Washington, "final" child support orders can be modified or adjusted. Similarly, "final" parenting plans can be changed based upon a "major modification" or "minor modification". In dealing with child support or parenting plan modifications, the Court has very specific statutory criteria to follow. However, generally speaking, the Court cannot modify most property awards or debt allocations entered in final divorce or legal separation orders.
