Q) I have court ordered 50/50 custody of my 3 children and I am forced to pay child support and maintain health insurance. I don’t have a problem with maintaining health insurance but child support with 50/50 custody of my children is completely absurd. I can barely afford food anymore and I’m fixing to lose my home. I’m very behind on all bills now and even had my electric shut off 3 times in the last year. How can this be changed?
A) Process of changing Child Support Order:
To ask the Probate and Family Court to modify a child support order:
Go into the court that made the child support order.
Fill out a Complaint for Modification form.
Take the form to the court Clerk.
Serve the Complaint and Summons.
Make “return of service”.
Schedule a court date for the hearing.
Keep in mind that once a child support order or agreement is in place, the payment amount may be increased or decreased under certain circumstances. If a parent’s earning ability or a child’s financial needs have changed – that could conceivably be enough to trigger a modification.
