Seasonal work and child support obligations

42892638_S.jpgAs a parent who is required to pay child support, you may have all sorts of concerns, questions, and responsibilities. For example, you may have fallen behind on your child support payments or worry about your ability to stay caught up. At Stange Law Firm, we also know that some non-custodial parents encounter child support problems due to the seasonal nature of their job.

Some people do not have steady income throughout the entire year for many different reasons. For example, some jobs may have an abundance of work in the summer and relatively little in the wintertime. Or, workers in certain fields may be laid off during a particular time of year. If your income changes substantially, you may have a hard time paying your child support. However, it is essential to keep in mind that child support obligations do not automatically vanish just because a worker is facing financial problems due to being temporarily laid off or even fired.

However, you may be able to take steps to lower the amount of child support you owe, depending on the details of your case. If your income has seen a significant change, you could have the ability to modify your child support order. By doing so, your monthly payments may become more compatible with your income and you could be able to avoid the consequences associated with becoming delinquent.

Feel free to navigate over to our child custody and support page, where you will be able to read more about legal issues involving child support orders.
