My daughter's mother took our daughter out of daycare almost 2 months ago and doesn't plan on putting her back in but when we went to court the majority of my child support payments were supposed to go to daycare fees but since those fees no longer exist, does my payment get lowered.
There is no automatic change in support unless the Order specifically provided for that. You will need to file for modification of support to reduce your payments.
I am exclusively a family law attorney, practicing primarily in the metro Atlanta, Georgia trial courts. However, I handle appeals from anywhere in Georgia.
If it hasn't been 2 years since your last child support order was signed there must be a material change in circumstances in order for you to modify your support. The amount of childcare, if substantial, would have increased your support. However, if the childcare was minimal, then not much has changed. It depends on how much the childcare was at the time. You could contact an attorney and have them create a child support worksheet to see what the difference would be to determine if you qualify for a modification or not.
