Could you receive a child support modification?

Making your child support payments in full and on time is a big deal. Not only does the law require this, but you know that it's bringing good to your child's life.

But what happens if you get to a point when you are unable to make your child support payments in full and on time?

If this happens, you need to quickly learn more about requesting a child support modification.

Here are the many steps you should take:

  • Act fast while you continue to make payments to the best of your ability. You want to take the first step as quickly as possible, as the court requires you to make payments in full until you receive a modification.
  • Learn more about the laws in your state, as the court will not approve a child support modification for just any reason.
  • Document your change in circumstances. You need a good reason for requesting a child support modification, such as a serious illness or job loss. If you have a good reason, make sure you document your change in circumstances.
  • Talk to the other parent about what is going on. If the person is open to hearing you out, he or she may agree to a child support modification.
  • File your request with the appropriate court. You shouldn't delay in doing so, as you have hopes of receiving a modification sooner rather than later.

Even though it can be a time-consuming process, if you are unable to make your child support payments in full, you have to request a modification. This is much better than the alternative of paying less and finding yourself in hot water.

Once you better understand your legal rights and how to request a child support modification, you'll find it easier to take the right steps at the right time.
