Attorney for Modification of Child Support in Ohio
A court can modify an award of child support if there has been a change of circumstances significant enough to justify a modification. A change of circumstances can generally be found if there has been an increase or decrease in the income of one of the parents. A parent who has become unemployed or underemployed would certainly be a factor in a change of circumstances determination. However, if a party voluntarily becomes unemployed or underemployed, a court may impute income to that parent. If you need help in modifying your child support payments, contact an attorney at Harris & Engler.
Child Support ArrearagesChild support obligations can only be modified going forward. That is, if you owe child support arrearages, you cannot go back in time to change the amount that is owed. That is why it is so important to modify your child support obligation moving forward. However, if you owe a significant amount of child support arrearages, it may be possible for an attorney to negotiate a reduction in your arrearages.
