Child Support and separation agreement


#1

Erin- if I just lost my job what do I do about child support- we have a separation agreement that I pay XYZ and pay all dance expenses, etc…- I will not be able to pay my rent if I still have to pay the agreed child support and dance expenses in our separation agreement- the separtion agreement was incorporated into our divorce- what can I do?


#2

You need to file a motion to modify child support.


#3

can you tell me what form I need? thanks


#4

There is no form. You may try and contact DSS to help you with the support issues in this case.


#5

also what about the agreement to pay dance tutution and expenses- will I still have to get that agreement if I lost my job


#6

Those expenses would be accounted for in a modified order.


#7

wouldn’t it have to go through the court since the separtion agreement was incorporated into the divorce decree


#8

Yes. DSS can help in certain child support court actions.
