Modifying your child support obligation

Even after your divorce in Wichita, the love that you feel for your children does not change (nor does your desire to provide for them). Your financial circumstances, however, could, and this may place you in the position of struggling to meet your child support obligation. Many come to us here at the Stange Law Firm PC in this same situation questioning what their options are (and concerned that they may face legal trouble if they are unwilling to make their payments). If you share this same fear, you will be happy to know that there is indeed a way to modify your child support agreement. 

Missing child support and your ability to travel

People often focus on some of the more commonly-discussed consequences associated with unpaid child support, which include stiff financial penalties and being taken into custody. Although these are serious concerns that should worry any parent who has fallen behind on their child support, there are other consequences that may lie ahead for you if you are delinquent on your child support responsibilities. For example, you may not be able to get a passport and this could prevent you from traveling, potentially derailing plans that have been in place for months and sometimes years.

Notoriety utilized by officials for child support enforcement

27299443_S.jpgIf asked to come up with an image of a deadbeat dad, most in Wichita may likely envision a man with no job, few prospects and little money. This likely comes from the assumption that those who can afford to make child support payments would, if (for nothing else) than to the avoid the potential legal trouble that can come from missing it. Yet the concept of the "deadbeat dad" may be more of a reflection of an attitude than it is one's financial situation. 

Determining imputed income

48379762_S.jpgIt is assumed that most parents in Wichita have no problem supporting their kids. Yet like many of those that we here at Stange Law Firm have worked with in the past, you might find yourself dealing with an ex-spouse or former partner that cannot (or does not want to) do it. He or she might get the idea that as long as he or she is not drawing in income, the courts cannot impose a child support obligation on him or her. He or she will likely be unpleasantly surprised to find out that is not the case.
