I’ve Lost My Job: Am I Going To Have To Pay Child Support?
We are now living in a pandemic with all its terrible economic consequences. Significantly, many businesses are having to cut back their workforce, and worse, some businesses are closing their doors.
If you have lost your job, it does not necessarily relieve you from child support payments. Your obligation doesn’t automatically stop even though you may have reduced or no income. You need to petition the Court to modify your support obligation. This will likely be easier in the aftermath of this unprecedented time.
The child support statutes do allow for modification due to economic hardship. But, remember, you have to ask.
