Question Details:I am have a a rough time getting my child support stipulation agreement modified. This is the second downward modification that I have. I am not making the same amount of money as before. The judge basically told me I can't modify it. Is this correct? What can I do? I am deeper into debt just paying the areas I owed.
Under state statutes in this country, one's child support obligations are based upon one's net monthly disposable income as set forth in each party's filed income and expense declaration with attached documentation.
If your income per month is on a steady decline based upon economic conditions and lack of salary increase, you should be able to modify your monthly child support obligations. However, if you do not have a family law attorney representing you in such a task, getting the results that you desire could very well be difficult.
As such, I suggest that you consult with a family law attorney to assist you in your endeavor if you do not have one presently representing you.
