Davis v. Davis (Mississippi 2017)

A parent who requests a modification of a support order must show a substantial change of the circumstances that existed at the time of the court order. The change must be unforeseen and happen after entry of the order. In this case, the father was convicted of a felony after the order was entered. Finding work was difficult for him due to the conviction, and the chancellor found this change justified a modification.
