Perhaps you have had a change of circumstances such as a reduction in employment income, living arrangements, or medical insurance changes. If this is the case, a Modification will be required and will need approval by the courts. If you are having trouble making your payments due to “material and substantial change of circumstances” it is recommended that you pay as much as you can toward your payments. Not making your payments will add interest to your account and put you further behind.
A child support order can be requested through the OAG – Office of the Attorney General of Texas by requesting a Child Support Review Hearing or by hiring an Attorney to represent your interest.
