I’ve been told that when my oldest daughter turns 18, she won’t automatically drop off of my child support (which is taken out of my paycheck). And that I’ll have to take my ex back to court to get the CS dropped (or reduced).
Is this correct? And will I need an attorney to do this? Is there anyway I can get shafted if I don’t have an attorney?
When the child support was established to begin with, my ex’s attorney did the calculations and sent them to the State (which I found out to be calculated incorrectly, in her favor, according to the NC Child Support calculator). So I’m afraid she may try to calculate it wrong again…UNLESS the state will automatically calculate it??
I hate to pay another attorney to go back to court over something that I feel should AUTOMATICALLY happen, since there’s no way to protest that my daughter is 18, but I also don’t want to shafted.
Please answer these specific questions:
(1) Is it true I have to go to court to get CS reduced?
(2) Will the attorney figure the new calculation or will the State do it?
(3) Do I need an attorney?
