Child Support - Job loss and child support
What you need to know
Contact your Child Support Agency
Your court order continues after a job loss
The child support you owe is court-ordered. Only a court order can change the amount you are already court-ordered to pay. A monthly child support obligation does not automatically stop when the source of income ends. You must modify your child support order if you wish to reduce or increase the charging amount. It takes a new court order to change the existing court order.
Receiving unemployment benefits
Sometimes unemployment benefits take a while before they start. Your next child support payment may be due before you get your first unemployment check. If your employer withheld payments from your paycheck, the Department of Economic and Employment Development (DEED) may withhold child support payments from your unemployment insurance checks.
