Q) I just been recently placed on child support. When the case was filed, at the time I was on a job making 15 an hour. I lost that job soon after the case was filed. I just been hired on with another job making 10 per hour. Now and child support just started and is garnishing almost 90 percent of my paycheck. What do I do?
A) Your child support payments can only 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.
