If you are looking to modify a child support order you will need to show the court that their is a change in circumstance rendering you unable to pay support previously ordered. The court ordered child support based on certain criteria and if it is not paid you may be found in contempt of court. It is extremely crucial that if your circumstances change that you immediately contact the court and ask to appear in court to have your child support reduced.
In addition to speaking with the court you may want to hire a lawyer. If a lawyer is hired then can show up with you at your child support modification hearing. The attorneys will know exactly what steps need to be taken and which form need to be taken to court to show the judge your change in circumstances.
