FILING THE MOTION TO MODIFY CHILD SUPPORT You must file the motion with the Clerk of Court located in Room 35, on the ground floor of the Cuyahoga County Courthouse, 1 W. Lakeside Ave., Cleveland, Ohio 44113. You will be required to pay a "filing fee" to the Clerk of Court at the time you file the motion. Please refer to Local Rule 1 of this Court's Rules for the correct amount. SERVICE The Court cannot consider your motion unless it has been "served" on your spouse. The motion you file must be "served" by the Clerk of Court (not by you). A commonly used method of service is by certified mail. You must instruct the Clerk to do this by filing "Instructions for Service". If the mail is returned to the Clerk from the Postal Service as unclaimed or refused, that information is posted on the "docket" in your case, and you will be notified by postcard. You must then instruct the Clerk to send service by ordinary mail. To do this, you must file a new "Instructions for Service" form, with a copy of the motion attached, requesting that service be made by regular mail. PLEASE NOTE: IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO MAKE SURE SERVICE IS COMPLETED. THIS WEBSITE DOES NOT EXPLAIN OTHER LEGAL METHODS OF SERVICE.
