Decreasing Your Child Support Payments
At the time of your divorce, the child support payments that were agreed upon were likely to have been representative of the financial circumstances of your own and your former partner. However, as time passes and your financial circumstances change, or those of your former partner change, it may become necessary to decrease child support payments so that they more accurately represent the present situation of both parents. If you believe that the amount of child support that you are paying or receiving needs to be reduced, you should first consult with a divorce attorney from The Woodlands.
Why You May Need to Decrease Child Support
Child support payments may potentially decrease under a number of circumstances, including in instances where:
- The parent receiving child support gains greater financial stability
- The parent paying child support experiences financial hardship
- The child no longer requires the same extent of support
- The child will be turning 18 years old
- The receiving parent remarries
Regardless as to whether you are receiving child support or paying it, our Woodlands legal team may be able to help you reduce the amount of child support that is currently being paid.
