I recently became unemployed. My child's father's child support payments were lowered due to the shared custody agreement. However, how long does one have to wait to get child support modified? He feels that since there is 50/50 physical time, he doesn't have to pay child support. However, I don't have any income at the present time (I am a professional and have always maintained a job. So, it's not about trying to get money for myself or being lazy). I know child support if for the child and not for me. However, if there is no money to support the child due to a loss of income, then how is that taken into consideration?
I will post this in the right section.
