If you're a dad paying child support, you might be understandably concerned if your ex-spouse decides to stop working when she has a new baby in a new relationship. Sometimes, you might suddenly be served with a child support motion, asking you to pay more money because your children's mother is no longer working.
The first thing you should do if you are served with such a motion is contact an attorney. Many attorneys offer free consultations so that you can get some advice about your next steps without plunking down a whole load of cash.
Make sure you bring any and all paperwork you may have been served to your meeting with your attorney, as well as your most recent support and custody orders and the Judgment from your divorce or paternity case.
Once you have consulted with an attorney, you will have a better idea what you need to do to move forward. We always recommend seeing an attorney before filing any papers, as it is very easy to make simple mistakes that could take your case off track.
