Another Post Judgment Child Support Motion In Central District
As legal document assistants we are authorized to work directly for folks in preparing their legal documents. And lately we have been seeing a huge increase in post judgment motions being filed .
This particular motion is asking for a modification of child support and they want the other party to pay for their attorney fees.
The motion that was filed was a request for more child support and stated that the father was now making more money. In most cases, you file a motion to modify child support if there is a change in circumstance such as a parent making more or less money.
In this case, the mother stated that father was making more money now and wanted the Court to order higher child support based on the guideline child support limits and that she was earning less money.
It all comes down to how much the parties make and how much custody and visitation each of them have. The problem sometimes is determining how much the parties truly make, especially when they own a business and are not receiving a paycheck that can be verified.
This motion also asked for the other party to pay for attorneys fees. That never rubbed my right. Tell me what you think about this.
A spouse hires an attorney to modify child support. She works and had access to funds, but because father makes more money, makes a request in the motion that the husband is to pay for all her attorney fees. If this motion is granted, then the husband has to pay for his wife’s attorney to file a motion against him. And just to rub salt in the wound, he is not hiring an attorney himself. He is going to have us prepare our firm prepare the response so he does not have to pay for an attorney he can’t afford.
