How to file a child support modification petition?

Q: I have just recently been laid off due to the covid 19 and I cannot afford my payments. What do I do now? 

A: Unfortunately the courts are not yet accepting non-essential filings (what constitutes “essential” is that which is designated on their list: http://www.nycourts.gov/whatsnew/pdf/AO-78-2020.pdf). Check back with the court’s website on a daily basis, as they are going to re-open courts for “non-essential” video hearing/filings within the next week or two. For a full assessment, schedule a consult with a Bronx Child Support attorney.
