I was just recently diagnosed as a type 1 diabetic. I now have to pay for all these unexpected medical expenses. Doctors visits, test strips, blood lab work etc. Would it be possible to get a reduction in my current child support orders based on the financial hardship I now face because of my recent diagnoses?
Maybe. It depends on what the actual expenses are, whether you can document them, and whether it would make a significant difference in the amount you pay, with those additional medical expenses. You'd have to actually run the calculation to know. If the outcome is not significant, then it isn't worth going to court to seek an adjustment. http://www.childsup.ca.gov/resources/calculatechildsupport/tabid/114/default.aspx
Yes, changed financial circumstances are a reason. The thing to weigh is whether the cost of attorney's fees would be more than the cost of what you would save. Most attorneys would be willing to calculate the savings for you over the phone.
