Child Support Modification

Recommended Posts

  I have to go to court on June 3 for Child Support Modification  because our son got in to some trouble and had to go live with his dad now but June  1 he will be 18 years old. He lived with me for 16 years. Can anyone tell me what should I know  before going to court that day. Will they make me pay child support even if his daddy owes 6,768.88 in arrears .What kind of question will they ask do anyone know? I don't like being in a courtroom talking . So how should I prepare for it.. any help from anybody would be nice and thanks . Oh By the Way this is in Louisiana Washington parish.

We don't have much relevant information.  If I were you, I would come with the originals and at least one set of copies of all documents that may be relevant.

Impossible to predict.  You should have to pay support for the time when he was living with his father, but you're free to ask that your obligation be offset against what the father owes you and hasn't paid.

This response is NOT intended to create an attorney-client

relationship.

 

Bring with your last 2 years income tax returns + 4 or 5 of

your recent paycheck stubs and whatever else was subpoenaed

from you for this hearing. If you paid the health insurance 

premium to cover the child, bring with proof of how much of

that you have paid since the child went to live with your ex-spouse. 

 

An offset may not be available because some Judges

believe that child support is technically owed to the child

and not the parent with physical custody (at least in the

state that I am in). You would need to check with a local

attorney in your area regarding how the Judge/Magistrate 

tends to view that issue.
