Rapper D-Roc successfully gets a child support modification

Sometimes a child support order that at one time seemed fair becomes unreasonable. Usually this is because of employment changes -- the parent no longer makes the same amount of monthly income they once did and can no longer feasibly pay the same amount. For those people who need a change in child support, there are options.

Rhode Island residents who are fans of early 2000s hip hop may remember the Ying Yang Twins. At one point the group was at the top of the popular music world -- the hip hop duo released quite a few number one hits. Since then, unfortunately, the group's popularity has waned and their earnings have dropped significantly.

Because of this drop in monthly earnings, one member of the hip hop group has requested a change in his monthly child support payments. At the peak of the Ying Yang Twins' popularity, rapper D-Roc was earning more than $19,000 a month. He was paying $2,500 of that in child support. Now, the rapper only makes $2,860 a month. He claimed in court that he can no longer afford the hefty payment plan and the judge agreed to reduce the child support payments significantly -- he now owes only $550 a month, $2310 less than what he was paying before.

Child support modification can be an option for anyone facing a payment plan they can no longer afford. To get a child support modification approved, the request must be brought before a judge -- even if both parents agree to the modification out of court.
