These child support modification tips can be your guide

There could come a point when you are no longer able to afford your child support payments. You hope that this never happens, as you want to financially care for your child, but you don't know what the future will bring.

It's important that you clearly understand how to request a child support modification, as this will go a long way in putting you on track to lowering your payment and making it easier for you to get by financially.

Here are some of the many steps you should take:

  • Make the first move as soon as possible. Once you know you need a child support modification, you should take the first step in turning this into reality.
  • Learn more about child support laws, such as what qualifies for a change in circumstances.
  • Speak to the other parent about your situation. This doesn't always work, but the other parent may understand your circumstances and agree to a child support modification for the time being.
  • Don't start missing payments. Even if you are facing a tough time in your life, you need to stay current with your child support payments to the best of your ability. It's your responsibility to make payments in full and on time until you receive a modification.
  • File the necessary paperwork. You should do this as quickly as possible, as it's the only way to know if the court will accept or reject your child support modification request.

These are just a few of the many child support modification tips that you should follow. Once you know the process and how to move forward, you can be more confident in every move you make.

It may not be something you want to do, as cutting your child support payment could have an impact on your child, but you can only pay what you can afford.
