Tim and his ex-spouse already jumped over the hurdle of establishing child support payments two years ago. Tim has been on top of all of the payments and made sure that his child’s mother has received every cent of money owed to her to support his child. However, over the past few months, it came to Tim’s attention that his ex-wife is now working full-time and bringing in significantly more income than before. While he did not mind paying what he was supposed to pay to maintain his child’s standard of living, he did not feel it was fair that she got to make and keep all of her earnings and not contribute as he was to the well-being of their child. He tried discussing this with her, but it led to a rather contentious discussion and ultimately nothing was resolved. After contacting his lawyer, Tim made the decision to arrange for child support modification.
This can be a situation that can be easily resolved if the ex-spouse is compliant and understanding of the modifications needed, but sometimes this can be a situation where the other party disagrees. In any case, it is a matter that needs to go through the court, so the best option is to call your lawyer and have them help you through the process, to ensure it goes by as quickly and efficiently as possible.
