Do you need to have your child support obligations modified?

If you're a child support paying parent, you are likely happy to help cover your child's expenses. And when the court determined your support obligations, it did so by looking at your capacity to make regular payments. Your income, as well as your mandatory expenses, were factored into the formula used to come up with the monthly figure. And so long as your financial situation remains stable, you should be able to stay on top of your payments.

But what if you suffer some sort of setback and you are unable to generate enough income to cover your support obligations? Well, regardless of your circumstances, you need to keep up with the payments. You see, you will always have to cover any amount you miss. If you stop paying, you are only digging yourself into debt.

Moreover, the court takes delinquent child support very seriously, and you could face a variety of penalties for nonpayment. You may have your wages garnished, your visitation rights altered or you could even be arrested.

Your best bet if you cannot make your child support payments is to file a request for a modification. Given your circumstances, you may be able to have child support terms changed to accommodate your present ability to make payments.

At the Law Office of Amy L. Beauchaine, we have a thorough understanding of the Florida family court system. And we strongly advocate for our clients who need help in matters pertaining to child support. If you are interested in having your support obligations modified, we would be happy to discuss your case with you.
