If the non custodial parent gets a new job, is he to inform child support immediately?
2 attorney answers
No, he has no duty to inform child support services that he has another job or especially that the new job is paying more. It's their job to gather his income. Now if they served him with a request for production of documents he should provide truthful responses. But if he has already done that, it's unlikely that he will voluntarily do that again. And any questions you have, you should speak to the Division of Child Support Services. They are the ones handing the case for your child. However, if you want have a case that moves more quickly where they can gather accurate information from the Defendant, it's best to hire an attorney and file a private child support action.
Without knowing the facts of your case it’s difficult to provide you with guidance. Has the new job changed his salary situation? You could contact the CS office to inquire about the new job.
