Father does not get to visit child, pays $500 for child support, lost license home and family due to mother moving away.

Q) Child lives with mother and father was granted visitation rights. Mother refuses to pick up phone calls or answer any text messages that attempt the father to schedule visits. Father starts paying child support on time to show that he’s willing to help but starts to fall behind because even with attempting to file contempt of court he still has not seen his child in over 3 years because of mother’s selfishness. Child support payments are ridiculously high ( $500) for one child, the father doesn’t get to visit or spend time with. Father had a fulltime job but he’s lost his license, home and family due to the mother running off with child to a different county, filed injunctions & divorce papers. Please advise.

A) Child support orders can be modified on a temporary or permanent basis. If the non-custodial parent loses a job or develops a temporary medical condition that affects earnings ability, support may be temporarily lowered. If this adult incurs a disability or is forced to take a lesser-paying job, a permanent adjustment may be in order.

A child support attorney can help a non-custodial parent determine whether the child support figure is too high. If it is, the attorney will build and present a case to lower this ongoing financial obligation on a temporary or permanent basis as warranted by filing their petition to modify child support. The non-custodial parent will pay a fair amount to support the child but no more than is necessary. https://www.familylawrights.net/blog/are-you-paying-too-much-child-

  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.
