If I Stop Working Entirely, Will The Brooklyn Court Lower My Child Support Payments?

If you make the choice to quit your job and earn no income, retirement benefits, or other revenue, no Brooklyn judge will eliminate your child support payments.

Instead, you’ll be ordered to continue paying an amount of child support calculated by the amount of money the court believes you could be earning.

This may be higher than it was before, if the court believes you were working less than you could have or had turned down opportunities in order to minimize your support payments.

It’s generally a bad idea to just give up, and always a bad idea to skip out on your child support payments.

Brooklyn has many ways of extracting what you owe, so it’s better to play the game and work within the system. We can help.
