Monmouth County Decreasing Child Support Attorneys
Among the many issues that arise during the divorce process, such as property division, alimony, and debt division, child support payments are typically of utmost importance for parents. And while an initial child support payment amount will be established legally, this amount can change, even decrease, over time. This decreasing child support can result from many different factors and can have a major effect on both the paying and receiving spouse.
At the Law Office of Andrew A. Bestafka, Esq., we work hard to ensure that Monmouth County residents know how decreasing child support can affect them. Whether a decreased child support amount will help you be more financially stable or would cause you significant financial responsibilities, knowing what your legal options are in this situation and having the support of a knowledgeable legal counselor is critical to protecting your interests.
Reasons for Decreasing Child Support
Because child support payments are usually made for many years – typically until a child turns 18 – it is common for the circumstances of either parents or even the child to change during this time. In fact, these decreases in child support payments typically occur due to:
- Decreased financial needs of child
- Receiving spouse remarrying
- Receiving spouse obtaining an increase in income
- Paying spouse earning a decreased income
A decrease in child support payments can have immediate and lasting effects for both spouses. Whether you are paying or receiving child support, it’s important to know about how decreased child support payments can affect you and make sure you and your family are protected.
