The child support i'm paying is more then what im bringing home in my net and the courts dont care about my cost of living
Q: i had a kidney removed due to renal cancer, i was out of work for 6months and when i went back to work i had to pay arrears and my base amount of support was increased im now unable to pay my bills on time and im facing eviction because im 2months behind in rent
David Bliven’s answer: The question is whether you made an application to lower the support at or just after the time of your surgery. The Court only has authority to lower support retroactive to the date you filed. That said, if your income is lower than it was before the surgery, this MAY be a basis to lower the support.
