Child support put hold on my checks, said I must come in to the office. I live an hour away and can’t miss work.

Q) The courts gave me custody of my 2 great grandchildren. Child support has put a hold on my checks because I have not complied with them but when I call to find out what I need to do they say I must come in to the office. I live an hour away and work Monday thru Friday, I can not afford to miss work is there no other way to settle this?

A) You may need to take some time off from work to rectify the problem with your child support payments. You could also look at getting legal representation. Please call your child support office and request any other possible options.

  1. Your child support payments can be changed only by a court’s modification order. The modification process can increase or decrease payments. The ways you can lower child support payments will vary by circumstance. You will need to convince a court that the financial situation of one or both of the parents has changed substantially generally. To lower your payments, you will need to file a motion in court to modify your child support payments. Most courts have pre-printed “fill in the blank” motion forms You will need to file this motion in the court that issued the initial child support order.
