Issues with Child Support Payments
Child support payments are likely a major part of your divorce if you have children from your divorce; generally, these payments offer the parent with whom a child predominantly lives extra financial support to take care of the child’s various needs, including those pertaining to educational, medical, and physical needs.
These child support payments might actually change as time goes on, but sometimes this can be frustrating and unexpected, in which case you might want to seek legal help. You can do this before, during, or after your divorce is finalized, depending on your particular needs and situation.
Child support agreements can change for a variety of reasons. For instance, the financial circumstances of one or both parents may alter, and a new agreement might be necessary to reflect those alterations. Additionally, it’s important to know that not only can changes occur (support payments might increase or decrease), but these agreements are legally enforceable, even after they change. Two issues that frequently arise during and after divorces include:
- Modifications to Child Support Agreements
- Enforcement of Child Support Agreements
Taking or defending yourself against these actions can be a complicated and drawn-out process. As such, many people choose to seek the help of a legal professional.
Dealing with a divorce, along with child support agreements, can easily become overwhelming. However, it doesn’t have to be, even if you are facing child support issues.
