When Can I Modify My Child Support Agreement?
My son moved in with his girlfriend and mother. He says his mother is giving him money toward rent to live there. She moved out of her apartment and moved in with her mom because she couldn’t afford the apartment. He is 20 years old and is employed part-time. He does not go to school. Says he moved in with his girlfriend because there is no room where his mom is living with her mother. He has not disclosed how much money his mother is giving him, if any.
You can file a petition to modify any time. Emancipation is based on a totality of the circumstances. The Support Magistrate will make a determination based on all of these facts. It is relevant that his mother has no place for him to live with her.
