Re SSDI garnishment for child support arrears (5 years+), can garnishment rate of 65% be reduced by request of RECEIVING party?

Asked 10 months ago - Greenwich, CT

Arrears date back more than 5 years to present, during which time parent owing CS had job(85K+), 99 weeks unemployment income. Non-paying parent now receiving SSDI, garnished (single, no other 'supported' children) at 65%. Can custodial/ ChildSupport receiving parent ask to receive lower payment (lesser garnishment) than 65%?

    Answered . Sure, they can ask, but they'll have to ask the court to lower it, and the court will have to agree and issue a modified support order.
