Lightbulb Fighting Child Support

If you are fighting child support because you can no longer afford it you will need to file paperwork to modify your existing child support order.

If your pay decrease is significant enough you may be able to lower the amount. But I doubt they will cancel it altogether. Maybe instead of buying clothes and supplies you should give the mother of your children the cash. Items such as insurance and food cost money and she may be in need.

You should take your case to the judge and ask them for a reduction in child support payments. Act quickly because it is much easier to get future payments reduced then past debt. Judges in child support cases do not like giving breaks to people who are behind on their payments.
