I pay child support for a 17old, I am retiring do I still pay child support on top of my pension qdro order?

Q: My son is 17yrs old, I still have to pay until he is 21, I am retiring in 2019 he will be 19, my qdro states she gets a portion of my pension masjukas formula, will I be paying child support and the qdro ordered pension payments too until he reaches age 21? I will not be able to survive.

A: David’s Answer: The short answer is yes. The QDRO distributes an asset you owe to your ex-wife. It’s considered separate & apart from your obligation to pay child support. Another thing: voluntary retirement is not generally a basis to file a petition to reduce child support. Schedule a consult with a Bronx Child Support attorney for a full assessment.
