Will I have to have 3 years of a 15% in pay to have my child support reduced ?

Q: Wanted to know, having a 15% reduction in my salary can be a cause to have my child support reduced. But is it 15% each of those 3 years or in a total of 3 years. I'm really struggling to keep up with it now, why the courts count overtime as part of my salary is a problem. Any help or advice would be appreciated.

Can the mother of my child reinstate a child support Oder after we went in front of a judge together and she took me off?

Can I file to stop child support payments to my ex if my ex now makes more money than me?

Q: 6 years ago, I was ordered to pay my ex child support since I was the higher earner. Custody and visitation has changed since this order. We now share 50/50 visitation and custody. (My ex and I live in the same town a few blocks from each other so we alternate custody every other week). Also, my ex now makes about $2000 more than I do. Is it better to petition to stop the child support payments since our incomes are similar? or is it possible for me to petition for her to pay support since her income has increased? Is $2000 more considered similar incomes or considered substantial enough for the judge to consider her the higher earner and now pay child support payments? Thank you for any help you can provide.

What do I bring to a child support hearing if I have no income as a custodial parent filing for child support?

Q: I have a 2 year old with special needs and an 11 month old baby. My 2 year old goes to school for 3 hours and receives therapy at home. Which makes me a stay at home mom with no income. I live with both of my parents and my dad is the only one working and he's financially helping me out with both kids.

Can my bank accounts be frozen to pay child support arrears even if arrears are being garnished from my paycheck.

Q: child support and arrears are being taken from my check every two weeks. I just got my bank accounts frozen by child support due to the arrears. very little on these accounts (I am broke) but my pay goes direct deposit to the checking account. Now that these accounts are frozen, I cant pay my bills. at this rate, I wont be able to pay rent or gas to get to work. Was my paycheck frozen on purpose? what can I do to remove this restriction on my funds short of paying back the full arrears? 

How can I go about reducing my child support amount?

Q: Me and my x wife agreed to the child support amount and in our agreement, but now I have unexpected expenses like I had to get a new car cause my 2006 car finally gave out, so I have car payments. We split all extracurricular activities and schooling 50/50, I feel I'm paying to much still with me paying have for our daughters extracurricular activities. Our divorce agreement was finalized in 2018. I'm financially struggling and dealing with a VERY unpleasant co parent to say the least.

Will the amount of child support be the same for an 18 year-old who chooses not to go to college or work?

Q: I am getting divorced in New York. My 18 year-old son is out of high school (got GED) and does not want to go to college or get a job. Basically, he sleeps during the day and hangs out at night. He said he wants to live with his father after the divorce. I know this is because he will not have to change his lifestyle living with his father, and knows I would require him to get a job or help around the house to contribute. Although I agree with NY law in supporting your children until age 21, I think the child support should be less than it is when the child is attending school and unable to work. I realize the bigger issue is my son's lack of motivation to move forward. But at the moment, I am asking about the support.
