Varying of an interim maintenance order

In order for a successful High Court Rule 43(6) application for the rescission, suspension or variation on an order, the applicant must show that circumstance of either the party or a child since the order was granted have materially changed to such an extent that the current contribution towards costs is no longer adequate.

There is no general rule for what constitutes a material change and will be determined in the context of each case. Evidence originally laid before the court which later appear to be inaccurate or incomplete would not be sufficient reason to justify the variation of the court order.
