Dear gn:

Greetings. First, when you post a second time, you actually move to the back of the line as we answer the oldest posts first.

First, file a motion to modify child support. The form is on the Administrative Office of Court’s website. You need to file this immediately and speak with the NC Child Support Enforcement Agency to get them to help you.

Next, no, there is not any forms for modification of child custody and yes, you will have to come here to get it heard. Thank you.

Hi Janet,

I read this post with interest. If I live in Washington state and coming to NC for a court case is a financial hardship, and hiring an attorney is a financial hardship, can a modification be done through deposition or maybe through UIFSA?

Thanks and best,

John

Dear jmsauer:

Greetings. No, a modification cannot be done through a deposition. If you need to ask for a modification, you should contact Child Support Enforcement and see if they can help you. Sometimes they will do it for you and you will not need to come to NC. Best of luck!

I am the father of two children in Lumberton. I’m trying to get visitation and modification of child support. I was just medically discharged from the military and cannot afford to go there. I have a lady who works in the child support agency there in Lumberton who will file paperwork for me, but the problem is that do I have to be there or is there paperwork which can be filed for hardship cases?
Any help would be great. Also a website which would allow me to download forms or pay for them would be great too. I’m falling way behind on child support based on my military pay.

Thanks
