Modification Of Child Support Representation
Life rarely works out like people hope it might. After a divorce, people often expect things will get better, and sometimes they’re right. However, when disaster strikes, you may not always be able to meet the obligations placed on you by court order. For example, if you’re a parent who is paying child support, you may not be able to make the monthly payment after losing your job or being demoted. If this happens, you need to modify your child support order.
Talk to one of our skilled Butler County family law attorneys about your case as soon as you find out about your job loss. We can help you file a modification with the court so your payments will not overwhelm you and put you at risk of going to jail.

What Is A Modification?
The courts understand that when life changes, people’s financial situation might also change. The modification is an administrative review process during which a court reevaluates a child custody case to reflect on the current financial situation of both parties. The result of the evaluation determines whether the child support amount can be altered.
Either parent or guardian can ask for a change in the support order, and some reasons for qualifying for a review include unemployment (through no fault of your own) for at least 30 consecutive days or a 30% decrease in gross income for a period of 6 months because of circumstances beyond your control.
