The recession is forcing divorced parents back to court to adjust or modify their child support obligations.  House values have declined, one parent may have been laid off from work, or day care costs and insurance increase, all of which have  increased a backlog in the family court calendars.

In this Star Tribune news article, Minnesota State courts spokesman John Kostouros said 5,380 parents filed for child support adjustments in the first quarter of 2009, up from 4,912 during the same period a year ago.  Nationally, the American Academy of Matrimonial lawyers has reported that 39 percent of the nation's top divorce attorneys cite an increase in modifications being made to child support payments.


Locally, in the Seattle, Bellevue, Washington area, we are getting more and more calls about adjusting child support and petitioning for modification of child support.  If you find yourself in an unexpected financial situation where you might need to change your support obligation, call us at the Andrew Kim Law Firm and speak with a child support attorney who can tell you what your options are.
