My husbands ex-wife wants to modify child support while he is in prison in NV

Asked about 2 years ago - Aurora, CO

My husband is in prison in Nevada & just received papers from his ex-wife wanting to modify his child support and the parenting plan. What can we/me do on our end as we know he is unable to pay his child support. Is there any paperwork that can be filed etc until he comes home

    Lawyers agree

    Answered . Your bigger issue likely is that it sounds like she is asking to change parenting time and defending that could be more important to you. The child support should not be a big deal. You should file a response within 21 days as to her requests and in that you can state that he is in prison and makes no money. Both parties will have to file a sworn financial statement and on that you will state that he is unemployed and makes no money (you might even be able to "stipulate" or agree with the other side to the child support based on $0 income for him). You might hire an attorney at least for a couple hours to look at what they are asking for in their motion and what your next steps might be. Lots of the lawyers here will help on a per hour basis with no retainer. Hope this helps.
