How to contest or reduce the child support amount?

Saint Paul, MN |

When my son has not been working 40 hours each week, in average, he work about half or a little more, he has fell short for all his expenses and we have to cover for him. This is really unfair while his ex also work.

  1. Best answer

    You'll need to file a motion to modify child support. There must be a change in circumstances. Please see http://www.mncourts.gov/forms/public/forms/Child_Support/District_Court/CSD201.pdf

    If your son still needs assistance I welcome the opportunity to consult with your son.

  3. Yes, your son would need to file a motion to modify child support. I would definitely hire an attorney if you want to be successful.


  4. Another option for your son may be to contact the Child Support Agency who handles his current child support case and let them know if there has been a change of circumstances. The child support worker may be willing to send out paperwork and consider requesting a modification before the Court due to these changes upon verification.
