My children’s father recently came off of disability. how do I go about getting child support for them?

Q) My children’s father recently came off of disability and is working. I am no longer receiving child support. He is currently working, how do I go about getting child support for them? He says he will take care of it, but I can’t help but worry.

A) The court will usually order a temporary modification of child support during the disability period of your children’s father. The court may decrease the child support amount for the expected duration of the disability because his disability pay will be less than regular pay. If the disability continues longer than anticipated, the disabled parent may go back to court and request that the modification of child support payments continue for a longer period of time or even indefinitely. The court will generally order a permanent modification of child support if a parent’s disability is medically considered permanent. Once the disability is over, a request can be made to modify the child support payments as the children’s father may then be earning more with regular pay.

  1. I have been trying to enforce for over a year. It has been over 9 months since our divorce which was pro se and signed by a judge. GWINNETT received a copy of the divorce And A notorized copy of all money that the NCP had paid up to the time they decided to enforce…..over and when they finally got the case set up they do not request ANY arrears and when the NCP ask what he owes they do not tell him and he wants to pay it but they say I cannot accept payment and if he pays arrears through them than it would appear that he is grossly ahead like 3 months instead of behind 3 months. No one seems to know what is going on and I only reached out to child support Recovery because I thought they would help but they HAVE NOT been very helpful and the child is the one that suffers.
