I lost my job this month and have filed a motion for modification of support.My last paycheck was on Dec.15 and the motion was filed the 19th.I am now ordered to pay $1350/month support and $1050 mortgage payment,how much would be considered a reasonable effort to pay the support.Obviously my children need a place to live but they also need their basic needs met.Should I neglect the mortgage and pay her what I can(reasonable amount ?) until I can get another job.
Child support is a payment made from one parent to another parent (usually from non-custodial to custodial), to help ensure the child's financial needs are met.
Either parent can request modification of a child support order due to changes in circumstances, such as different income or major changes in the child's needs.
