Can I change my child support payments if I lost my job?
If you have lost your employment through no fault of your own and you are paying child support, you need to immediately file a petition to modify child support in family court. Any modification is effective as of the date that you filed. The sooner you file, the sooner you get a decision, the sooner you will get some relief. The court will determine if you have lost your job through no fault of your own. If you quit your job, you’re not going to get relief, but if you lost your job through no fault of your own or if you have been unable to obtain employment at the same level of income, the court is likely to grant you relief.
