If the court has ordered you to pay child support and you lose your job in that timeframe, you should immediately notify the court and ask for a reduction in your required payments for child support, since it could take months for this to be decided and changed by the court.
In the meantime, you must be actively seeking employment and keeping documents of your efforts in finding another job, including copies of your employment applications, resumes, etc. If you cannot prove that you have been seeking employment, you may not get a reduction and will have to continue paying the previously stated child support payments.
If you are receiving unemployment compensation, the court ordered support will be taken directly from your check, but this may not be as much as the court order. This is why you must be prepared to prove that you are actually looking for another job.
Although you may ask the court to reduce your payment, it is best to have an experienced attorney guide you through this complicated process. Here at Feldman Law, our attorneys are well versed in family law and can help you in your child support case. Contact us today for a consultation.
