A: David’s Answer: Once arrears accrue, it is extremely difficult to get them vacated. Merely being unemployed during that time would be insufficient as you’d have the dual burden of proving what your income was, and what “diligent efforts” you were making at the time to find work. Even then your case is unlikely to succeed. Call a Bronx Child Support attorney to schedule a consult for a full assessment.
