As a knowledgeable Saratoga Child Support Attorney, I am often asked if your ex can reduce their child support by quitting their job.
- Child support is not automatically reduced by loss of a party’s job.
- The parent seeking reduction or modification bears the burden of application to the family court.
- The court may not view someone’s voluntarily quitting their job – or being fired for cause – as a change in circumstance that warrant modification of child support because the action was the fault of that parent.
