Paying child support after the loss of your job

On Behalf of | Apr 4, 2018 | Divorce

All sorts of legal problems related to children can arise when parents decide to split up, from custody issues to problems with child support. Whether you have anxiety about how much child support you will need to pay or you are currently unable to fulfill your obligations, child support can be incredibly stressful. Moreover, certain difficulties may arise that can make it even more difficult for parents to stay current on the child support they owe, such as the loss of a job.

Whether you were laid off and anticipated losing your job for months or you were fired without warning, losing your job can have financial repercussions on your life in many ways. Not only can it make child support payments more difficult to stay current on, but falling behind can lead to even more hardships, such as a social stigma, an inability to apply for a passport, and even the risk of being arrested. If you have experienced major financial changes in your life due to the loss of your job or a drastic reduction in the number of hours you work per week, you may be able to have your child support order modified.

It is pivotal for parents who are struggling with family law issues such as child support or custody to closely go over their different legal options. From child support modification to enforcement, there are many legal hurdles related to a child support order that parents should work through properly. Our family law page offers more related to modifying child support orders.
