What If I Cant Afford My Child Support Payments?
To request a child support payment modification, you must prove that your circumstances have changed since the initial agreement through paystubs, bills, doctor’s notes, and any other pertinent information. If your circumstances have not changed and you still cannot pay your child support, you may need to analyze your budget, spending, and lifestyle.
If you stop paying child support and do not attempt to modify your payments, you could be found to be in contempt of court – and you could face serious consequences.
