Our law office knows how difficult daily life can be for some non-custodial parents. Making child support payments can be tough, if not impossible altogether. Unfortunately, the consequences that come with failing to make these payments can make a parent's life even more challenging. Some people have found themselves in this tough spot because they were out of work due to an economic recession, while others experience financial hardships due to a health scare or some other crisis. If you are struggling with health problems and worry that you will not be able to fulfill your child support duties, you may want to examine child support modification.
Modifying a child support order can be beneficial for custodial and non-custodial parents. If a parent modifies their child support order, they may be able to stay current on their payments. After all, custodial parents would not want the other parent of their child to stop paying altogether. Fathers who are struggling with child support payments may be able to avoid the numerous consequences associated with failing to stay caught up, which include the interception of tax refunds, passport ineligibility, arrest and so on.
Child support modification has been a lifeline for many parents who were wondering how they would ever be able to pay their child support. If significant financial changes have impacted your ability to make payments on time, this may be an option that you will want to take a close look at and you should go over the various requirements.
