Who can I contact to find out why my monthly child support payments have decreased significantly?

A) Unfortunately, I cannot give legal advice or direct you to specific individuals. However, I can provide some general information that may help you find the answer you’re looking for:

Potential reasons for a decrease in child support payments:

  • Change in income: If the parent paying child support has experienced a significant decrease in income due to job loss, illness, or other reasons, they may have requested a modification to their child support order.
  • Change in child’s circumstances: If the child’s needs have changed significantly, such as they are now living with the other parent full-time, the child support amount might be adjusted.
  • Administrative error: There is a possibility that the decrease is due to an error in processing the payments.

Who to contact:

  • Child support agency: The child support agency in your state is responsible for enforcing child support orders and can provide information about your specific case. You can find the contact information for your state’s child support agency online or by calling 1-800-538-9379.
  • Your attorney: If you have an attorney who represented you in your child support case, they can help you understand why your payments have been reduced and advise you on your next steps.
  • The other parent: You can try contacting the other parent directly to ask them why the payments have decreased. However, it is important to be respectful and avoid making accusations.
