Q: I currently pay child support, then I was laid off. As I was laid off I continued to pay. I filed for a modification of support in 2020. Now I have a job and I make more money. I just received an appointment from the courts for modification. Can I cancel the petition and how?
A: You can always withdraw by simply sending a letter to that effect to the Court (copy to opposing party). That said, bear in mind you can still proceed to can an adjustment for the months you were out of work, if you choose. Schedule a consult with a Bronx Child Support Attorney for a full assessment.
